Mace vs. Sword: a weapon guys analysis of use

Maces have one HUGE advantage over swords and axes.... you don't have to worry about the striking angle. You don't have to bend your elbow or wrist in such and such a way as to put the edge on to your opponent. ANY strike with a mace hits with striking surface.

Another advantage to it is that any stupid peasant farm boy could pick it up and kill any knight in Christendom. It is for this reason that the Pope declared the Flanged Mace to be 'Unchristian' and 'unsuitable for use in Christian warfare'.
