My heroine is very tall: around 5'11" and thin from malnourishment. I know that she'll be weak and such during training because she's not been eating right, but the real question is what advantages, disadvantages will she have in being so tall? Or is it a factor at all? Her sword is a basic broadsword and I think, from the little research I've acquired so far, that she will also have a shield, or at least a buckler.
I've searched google on "height factor in swordplay" but came up with useless info.
