Item description for The Knight and the Blast Furnace: A History of the Metallurgy of Armour in the Middle Ages & the Early Modern Period (History of Warfare, 12) by Alan Williams, Elisabeth Mulder, Fabio Moretzsohn, Martha Sears, Andrew M. Jacobs, Sidney Offit, Arthur Nersesian & Scott Silsby...

This book tells the story from its invention in 14th-century Lombardy, which depended on the production of the necessary steel plates, until its eventual decline in the 17th century, principally because of developments in another area of military technology, the gun. The metallurgy of 600 armours has been analysed, and their probable effectiveness in battle has been assessed by means of mechanical tests.
