On 6 July 1495 a sudden gunshot came from the right bank of the Taro River in the Gerola Valley, near Fornovo (not far from Parma); shortly afterwards a sky full of clouds unleashed its fury on a wretched battlefield. That gunshot kicked off a battle which changed warfare and represented the starting point of a raging conflict known as the Italian Wars.

Francesco II Gonzaga, a brave commander and leader of the League, challenged the fury of the flooding Taro River in a clash against Charles VIII, a contemptuous king who ravaged the peninsula from Piedmont to Campania and spread terror wherever his terrible mercenaries set foot.

This volume, The Italian Wars Volume 1. The expedition of Charles VIII into Italy and the Battle of Fornovo, offers an accurate analysis of every frantic stage of the battle.

The reader will be transported into the heart of battle and exposed to the rumble of thunder and the clash of arms. They will see how the encounter wore out both sides, leading the opponents to an unclear resolution: both armies claimed victory.

The text offers a detailed description of the composition of the armies, the weapons, and the armour, as well as of the heraldry borne by captains and shown on standards. Such analysis is based on the authors' research on Italian and French contemporary documents and pictures. Wonderful painted illustrations are shown on charts, thus delivering an immediate and clear overview of the men and the colours on the battlefield.

Descriere RO La 6 iulie 1495 a venit o lovitura brusca de pe malul drept al raului Taro in Valea Gerola, langa Fornovo (nu departe de Parma); la scurt timp dupa aceea, un cer plin de nori si-a dezlantuit furia pe un nenorocit camp de lupta. Aceasta lovitura a declansat o batalie care a schimbat razboiul si a reprezentat punctul de plecare al unui conflict dezlantuit cunoscut sub numele de razboaiele italiene. Francesco II Gonzaga, un curajos comandant si lider al Ligii, a provocat furia raului Taro inundat intr-o ciocnire impotriva lui Charles. VIII, un rege dispretuitor care a devastat peninsula din Piemont pana in Campania si a raspandit teroarea oriunde i-au picior teribilii mercenari. Acest volum, The Italian Wars Volume 1.
