The Swiss have a reputation as a nation of riflemen. This is mostly due to the fact that military-aged men are required by law to store their army-issued personal weapon at home and are allowed to keep it - with a proper license - after their period of service in the militia has ended. This, however, is a relatively recent development. For three hundred years, starting in the 12th century, the Swiss were widely feared for the terrible havoc they could wreak upon the battlefield with their infamous halberds: The Swiss voulge effectively combined the finest attributes of the spear, battle axe and hook into one devastating weapon. It was able to pierce the thickest steel armor and shatter a sturdy helmet or shield. The halbard's 'beak' could also be used to drag a heavily armored knight from his mount to be slain by the wielder's brothers in arms.More information
