Oh dear. A wasted opportunity: with Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta and Federico da Monetefeltro you've a good story, two strong characters, and can include a great deal of interesting background. What you shouldn't do is waste half the book giving 400 years of background; provide a broad-brush narrative but no analysis and little context beyond basic politics; and include so many errors and infelicities it makes the reader want to throw the book across the room. Just one example: dedicating a cha [...]

Very dense but useful background reading. Absolutely no hope of getting my head around all the characters and their alliances. Good maps and family trees. A very tall order to bring off a coherent narrative when it covered 300+ years of history and any number of different families. the vendetta element wasn't heavily stressed which was a shame.

The man needs a better editor. There is much rambling and often he talks about things completely unrelated. The two people featured on the cover don't actually appear in the history until about half way.

This is the true story of a life-long battle between two of the mercenary captains, condottieri of the Italian renaissance: Federico da Montefeltro and his rival Sigismondo Pandolfo. Their families had feuded for centuries, but these two brought things to a climax.

The aythor assumed too much knowledge of complex Italian history on the part of the reader
