Crusaders, Condottieri, and Cannon: Medieval Warfare in Societies Around the Mediterranean

Donald J. Kagay, Kagay, L. J. Andrew Villalon
Brill, 2003 - 494 páginas
This volume consists of the work of eighteen established and younger scholars and focuses on the Mediterranean as a military arena during the Middle Ages. The essays center on several pillars of Mediterranean warfare: the crusading movement including the Spanish reconquista, the development of gunpowder weaponry, the widespread use of mercenaries, and warfare as understood by the lawcodes and intellectuals of the period. A number of articles in this collection present new answers to old historiographical questions.
