Military Quiz: HEMA stands for “Historical European Martial Arts” and is defined as any historically preserved warfare, dueling, or self-defense system originating from Europe. Such fighting styles survive in the form of military manuals, fencing treatises, and dueling manuals. This quiz only includes primary battlefield weapons with surviving treatises. War begins at far distance, so \'primary weapons\' are long weapons unless large shields are involved. We have another quiz for swords.
