Medieval Siege Weapons: Byzantium, the Islamic World & India AD 475-1526 (New Vanguard, 69)
by David Nicolle, Sam Thompson
The medieval period was probably the most inventive and varied in military history when it came to the development of non-gunpowder military machines. This book looks at the resulting stone throwing machines that used assorted sources of power from torsion 'energy storage' systems, to manpowered sling devices, counterbalance shiny devices, rockets, and others.

Siege Weapons of the Far East (1) Ad 612-1300 (New Vanguard, 43)
Siege Weapons of the Far East (1) AD 612-1300 (New Vanguard, 43)
by Stephen Turnbull, Wayne Reynolds
The prevalence of particular Fortress types in medieval China, Mongolia, Japan and Korea demanded the evolution of different modes of siege warfare in each country. The wealthy walled towns of China, the mountain fortresses of Korea and the military outposts of Japan each presented different challenges to besieging forces, and this book reveals the diversity of tactics and siege-craft that were developed to meet these challenges.

This book reveals how the combining of technological traditions from the GrecoRoman world, Persia, India and above all China made a massive contribution to the development of siege techniques. Medieval military engineering was equally inventive in terms of mining, counter-mining, the breaking of walls, the use of noxious and chemical fumes and the use of fire-weapons.

Siege Weapons of the Far East (2): Ad 960-1644
by Stephen Turnbull, Wayne Reynolds
Increasingly from the 11th century AD, East Asian armies used exploding missiles and siege cannon to reduce the Fortifications of their enemies. These ranged from heavy siege cannon such as those used during the siege of Pyongyang with the Japanese invasion of the late 16th century. This book details the design and use of the wide range of weaponry available during this period.
