Summary "This book presents the first detailed account in English of the lives of several of the leading Italian condottieri -- 'captains of fortune' -- based exclusively on Italian sources. Essentially, it is a study of individual acquisition and maintenance of power by force of arms. The time span is three hundred years -- roughly 1200-1500 A.D."--Page 11.
