From the War of the Roses battlefields to the Burgundian Wars, the war hammer was appreciated for its versatility, manoeuvrability and its effectiveness against armour. Recent studies have shown that it was one of the weapons used by the Yorkist cavalry pursuing the fleeing soldiers of the defeated Lancaster army at Towton in 1461.
Should never be used in real combat !
