Men at Arms is a fantasy novel by British writer Terry Pratchett, the 15th book in the Discworld series, first published in 1993. It is the second novel about the Ankh-Morpork City Watch on the Discworld. Lance-constable Angua von Überwald, later in the series promoted to the rank of Sergeant, is introduced in this book.
When fighting on foot, men-at-arms initially adapted their ordinary cavalry weapons. Although rare, some non-knightly men-at-arms did advance socially to the status of knights. The knighting of squires and men-at-arms was sometimes done in an ignoble manner, simply to increase the number of knights within an army (such practice was common during the Hundred Years' War). In chivalric theory, any knight could bestow knighthood on another, however, in practice this was usually done by sovereigns and the higher nobility.
Real Men Wear Black, and especially the Tamati chapter, changed all of that. It opened up just how vicious, dirty and hateful not just rugby, but being a man could be. And, how if you choose to take that path, you’re going to end up probably regretting it later in life when someone comes along to hear your story. Because, in the case all of subjects in Real Men Wear Black, there was a man behind his on field deeds that had plenty of other legitimate things to be proud of. It completely transformed the way I think about the game, and its effect on New Zealand society. Most importantly, through.
Men-at-Arms are the most basic line-infantry fielded by the armies of Bretonnia. Whilst the Knights are the backbone of most Bretonnian armies, the peasants form the overall bulk.

Men-at-Arms on the other hand, are probably the closest thing to a professional soldier a Bretonnian army can field
The City Watch needs MEN!’ The 14th in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series, and the 5th to feature Sam Vimes. There was no real point in trying to understand anything Twoflower said, and all anyone could do was run alongside the conversation and hope to jump on as it turned a corner. Then they all heard it; a tiny distant crunching, like something moving very quickly over the snow crust. It was louder now, a crisp rhythm like someone eating celery very fast.
The remaining men-at-arms wear mail and fabric, and there are some items of metal armour to be seen. However these are mostly on the knees and elbows, which is where such armour first appeared, so these figures are more appropriate for the earlier part of this long war. However their costume seems quite accurate, as do their weapons, which are a frightening display of swords, spears, axes and clubs.

If you have to look along the shaft of an arrow from the wrong end, if a man has you entirely at his mercy, then hope like hell that man is an evil man. Because the evil like power, power over people, and they want to see you in fear. They want you to know you're going to die. So they'll talk.
