Certain technical details are clearly obsolete today.

In 1932, Italian fencing maestro Luigi Barbasetti wrote his now famous The Art of the Foil (recently reprinted by Barnes & Noble). While this work by a respected classical fencing expert (who lived in an age where occasionally still lethal dueling was not all that infrequent) has been largely influential to modern sport fencers, it is interesting to today's historical swordsmanship students for other reasons entirely. Barbasetti includes an entire section on historical swordsmanship at the end of his excellent instructions on foil.
