I was just wondering, if there were any good armor studies. If someone has written a book, made videos, etc. about all there is about body armor?
I personally love all the ornamental and cool designs I see people drawing. But I'd like to get a grasp on what armor is actually supposed to look like, and protect.
edit: When I say armor, I mean the whole shebang. Medieval armor, Modern soldier armor, primitive armor, etc.
Helpful hints, book titles, hotlinks, All appreciated. Thank you
