Five years ago Jean LOZES wrote a French/English English/French Glossary of Long and Short Firearms for the same publisher. He then took an interest in military orders and medals which led him through innumerable episodes of worldwide History. He could observe that some European rewards showed a close similarity with those of far away countries. Hence his idea to try and find likenesses between curved swords and sabres from very distant countries.He thus found out that the curve of the blades had established a universal link between the armies of the world since the most ancient eras- the VIIth century being the starting point of this long history which has lasted over to our times. This book intends to report ans share the results of this research.
The book is in French, accompanied by a booklet with the English translation of the most important chapter of the book.
