Hi Folks,

I can recommend reading "British Sword Fighting" by D.A. Kinsley, available on Lulu.

http://www.lulu.com/gb/en/shop/d-a-kinsley/british-sword-fighting/paperback/product-20091131.html

It is a large collection of first hand accounts of various sword engagements from the 18th to the 19th centuries. Most of them deadly. Interesting read on the actual effectiveness of various techniques, eg: cut vs thrust; people's ability to survive deadly injuries long enough to kill the other chap; and just how crap standard issue British swords were for most of the C19thC.
