VIKING SWORD: HOW TO USE THE VIKING SWORD IN REAL COMBAT The Vikings were among the most feared warriors in the history of mankind. In this extraordinary video, renowned historian and sword expert Hank Reinhardt provides a rare insight into the sword fighting tactics of the Viking raiders. Reinhardt spent decades analyzing archeological relics, the Icelandic sagas and other historical materials to develop a theoretical blueprint of the Vikings' fearsome style of sword combat. He then put his theory to the test through countless hours of full-contact sparring with reproduction weapons. Through dramatic fights featuring swordsmen in authentic period costume, this video presents a graphic analysis of all four major styles of Viking sword combat (sword vs. sword, sword and shield without armor, sword and shield with minimal armor, and sword and shield with full armor) and teaches you the most reliable, combat-proven tactics of each. A landmark accomplishment in the history of armed combat, this video is destined to become a classic.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:The late Julius "Hank" Reinhardt was one of the world's foremost experts on sword history and ancient warfare, with more than 50 years of experience in medieval reenactment, practical research and antique arms collecting. He was the founding father and former director of Museum Replicas Limited, perhaps the largest purveyor of period weapons and garb in existence today. ISBN: 0-PAL-VIKINGDVD publish date: 01/01/2009
