Osprey Publishing, 2018. — 96 p.Campaldino is one of the important battles between the Guelphs and Ghibellines - the major political factions in the city states of central and northern Italy. It heralded the rise of Florence to a dominant position over the area of Tuscany and was one of the last occassions when the Italian city militias contested a battle, with the 14th century seeing the rise of the condottiere in Italy's Wars.In this highly illustrated new study, renowned medieval historians Kelly De Vries and Niccolò Capponi have uncovered new material from the battlefield itself, as well as using all the available sources, to breathe new life into this colourful and fascinating battle.Kelly De Vries holds a Ph.D. from the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto. He is professor of history at Loyola University Maryland and has most recently written Medieval Weapons: An Illustrated History of their Impact and The Artillery of the Dukes of Burgundy, 1363-1477, both with Robert Douglas Smith. Count Niccolò Capponi is a part of Florence's living history. His family has been in the city since the thirteenth century and he is a historian. After earning a Ph.D. in military history from the University of Padova, he returned to Florence where he currently teaches political science and the history of Florence to Americans studying abroad. He is, most recently, author of Victory of the West: The Story of the Battle of Lepanto, as well as I legionari rossi: Le brigate internazionali nella guerra civile spagnola 1936-1939, a history of the international brigades during the Spanish Civil War.
