HEMA MANUALS

Wiktenauer is an amazing resource for HEMA practitioners, especially when you're sitting in front of a PC, or you were lucky enough to get that great spiral bound copy of a bunch of manuals they released a few years ago. However, when you are out training, studying or contemplating the body of HEMA texts away from your PC, Wiktenauer sadly falls short.
The goal of YHF's Ebook project was not to replace Wiktenauer as the primary resource for HEMA practitioners, it's simply to provide a more mobile friendly format for some of the content, while simultaneously addressing some of what I feel are shortcomings.
All of these downloads are made available at no cost, under the Creative Commons NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International license (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0) the same as the original source material on Wiktenauer. All credit for the translations goes to the original translator, who graciously made their work available to the rest of us. It's the least I could do to continue in the same spirit.
