"This was the age of the new man", Frances Stonor Saunders writes. "And John Hawkwood was the most audacious of them all. His scheme, quite simply, was to hold Europe's richest country to ransom, and he turned the business of war into an exhorbitant art. Over a period of thirty years, Italy had to buy herself back from him with tiresome regularity." "Simply the most vivid account of the late mediaeval world I have ever read."
