First off let me make simply say thank you to Net Galley for allowing me to review this book as an ARC.
Although few in number, elves produce the most skillful and deadly warriors of all the races. Renowned for their archery and agility, they are mostly associated with hit-and-run tactics; however, they should not be underestimated in open battle. This book compiles all of the information known about these elegant warriors and how they practice war. From an initial examination of the fighting methods of the individual Elf warrior, it goes on to reveal how they do battle in small companies and vast armies. It covers all of their troop types--from their famed bowmen and swordmasters to their lightning-fast cavalry--making special note of regional variations and highly specialized fighters such as war mages.
Accompanied by numerous illustrations in both color and black and white, this book examines a few specific battles in great detail in order to fully demonstrate the elf way of war.
I also have to confess that I love elves, it’s the reason why I love Sarah J Maas so much. Honestly, who doesn’t love elves, their always a symbol of ageless beauty, funny antique phrases, and cunning while also holding back on how actually wise they are. Did I mention that I’ve always had a love for archery and elf crafted swords as well? Let’s all admit that I’m just a fangirl for elves and faeries.
Elf Warfare written by Chris Pramas taps the deep well of fascination that many people who love elves will enjoy, whether you like elves because of their pointy ears or timeless age of growing old. This book is ideal for anyone whose going to use it as references such as gamer, writer, or character designers. Osprey presents the various fighting style that would be used in various battle formats that are used in the faeries.
This book is a great and short reference for anyone whose interested in using the book to references the universal realm of fantasy and mystics.
