      It's a good start, with reasonable coverage of history and mythology,
      though with occasional typos.

      There's actually enough historical material of the Germanic martial
      tradition for a fully functional modern practice. For unarmed combat, a
      couple of historical manuals give a good introduction (from the
      recommended Truefork site):
      http://www.truefork.org/DragonPreservationSociety/Passchen.php
      http://www.truefork.org/DragonPreservationSociety/Petter.php
      And the Codex Wallerstein is packed with close-combat material, about
      half of it unarmed.
      As for the weapon combat, the Medieval and Renaissance manuals actually
      give plenty of info, as the techniques for certain weapons were
      consistent for centuries. For example, the classic one-handed sword and
      round shield uses the same basics as sword and buckler, which in turn is
      shown in Tower Manuscript I.33, Ringeck's sword and buckler section, and
      Marozzo's sword and buckler section. Much advice on how certain things
      were done overall is listed in remarks from Lichtenauer, Ringeck,
      Doebringer, Meyer, and others, which answer a lot of potential questions.
