I would also recommend Hugh Soar, I have most of his books. His latest is "Straight and True: A select history of the arrow". It is at Amazon for $18.02.http://www.amazon.com/Straight-True-Select-History-Arrow/dp/159416147X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1349278247&sr=8-1&keywords=straight+and+true+arrowJon
Hardy wrote a decent narrative but the books are basically unreferenced for a start. It would have helped
'Longbow' very much if a bibliography was included, but it's not.
I VERY highly recommend 'The Crooked Stick, A History of the Longbow' by Hugh D. H. Soar and any other works
by him. Highly detailed, very well referenced. Truly excellent works.
