This 96-page book paperback explains how Campaldino's historical impact has been overshadowed by its literary significance because it plays a prominent role in the "Divine Comedy." It turns out that Dante fought in the battle and his impressions of the ferocious combat inspired his long narrative poem.
Toy Soldier & Model Figure
...highly recommended for its in-depth coverage of a significant battle in Italian history, the in-depth coverage of the military technology and weaponry used in the battle, the excellent coverage of the political, economic, social, and religious environment in which the battle took place, and the superb artwork and images that accompany the text.
