Volume 6 continues the Journal of Medieval Military History's tradition of providing a wide range of scholarly studies, covering topics as diverse as Carolingian war-horse breeding (Caroll Gillmor), late-medieval Spanish methods of war-finance (Donald Kagay), the interface between military action and politics at the end of the Hundred Years War (Christopher Allmand), and the tactical methods of Cuman warriors (Russell Mitchell). Past volumes of the Journal have been praised for their contributions to the ongoing debates that enliven the historiography of warfare in the Middle Ages, and that tradition too continues with the new volume. Aldo Settia's study of the relationships between communal horsemen and footsoldiers in High Medieval Italy has significant implications for the dispute over the importance of infantry before the fourteenth century. Gillmor's piece contributes to the hotly debated subject of Carolingian army sizes. Richard Abels' important article deals with the contrasting "cultural determinist" and "scientific" approaches to understanding the mindset of medieval warriors, and the existence (or not) of a "Western Way of War."
