A German long sword is a one handed weapon am I correct?

yes... and no...
in the middle ages a sword was always used together with a shield.... everything else is just stupid.
Movies often don`t like to show that fact because a shield is just not very elegant... ;-)


So when the full plate armour was developed in the late 14th century, there was no need for a shield anymore and the warriors had a free hand... at that point the longsword was developed because you can put much more energy in a two-handed-sword.

So it is possible to handle the longsword with just one hand.....yes.... but it`s not pretty likely. You can put more than double of strenght in it when taking it with two hands. (leverage effect)

I see okay so would a shortsword then be the equivalent to a one handed sword in the case of using it with a Shield also? Or does it just depend on the time period and armour used?

it depends on the time period and the area...

Roman Legions used a very short sword and a very big shield...

Vikings and Crusaders for example used swords of about 1 meter lenght + shield... (thats europe 8th to 13th century)

...later in the ages of Chivalry and Samurai you`ll find more two handed swords without shield but with full-body-plate -armour.
