This is a collection of accounts of various 14th-century deeds of arms. Some are tournament combat, some are acts of war (Muhlberger points out that the distinction between the two can be vague). It includes accounts by Jean Froissart, Jean le Bel, Henry Knighton, and others. Most texts are presented in their original language with a translation, usually by Muhlberger.
