Knyghthode and Bataile ("Knighthood and Battle", Cottonian MS Titus A.xxiii) is a 16th century of an English war book written by John Neele in 1458-1460. The original currently rests in the Titus section of Cotton Library, in the British Library in London, United Kingdom. Knyghthode and Bataile is a verse paraphrase of Flavius Vegetius Renatus' war book De re militari (ca. 390), and is particularly interesting for its detailed description of training with a pole or pile (commonly referred to as the Poem of the Pel).
