Arrowstorm - Richard Wadge

Lots of information but I found the author would go off at tangents, so I had to keep refering back to earlier parts of the book. It gives information about how archers got into an army, where they came from, what happened to them before and after wars, prices of goods, wages, armour and other weapons, length of service.
I'd suggest having a note book to hand if you want to extract information from it. Overall a heavy read but useful.

I'd go along with much of what was said above. This is a book that requires revisiting again and again, most usefully in conjunction with another title or a question you need answered.
