GALLOGLAS: From the Western Isles to Ireland
From their appearance in the 13th century to the 16th century wars of the Tudor age, the so-called galloglas determined the manner in which war was waged on Irish soil. While traditional Irish warfare mainly relied on swift-footed hit-and-run tactics, these battle-hardened warriors stood and fought it out to the last man, galloglass often facing galloglass. Written in cooperation with Claiomh, one of the leading Irish reenactment groups reconstructing the daily life of the galloglas.

Describes the origins, history, and eventual disappearance of the galloglas from the battlefields of Ireland. Drawing on the latest archaeological evidence, it sheds light on the outward appearance, weapons and equipment, pay, organization, and the motivation of these fearsome warriors. Illustrated throughout in colour with five full-page colour plates, contemporary illustrations, and photographs.1 vol, 156 pgs 2024 GERMANY, ZEUGHAUS VERLAG
