SOTTO LE BANDIERE DI SAN MARCO
Through unpublished documents, pamphlets, and military treatises, this covers the organization and the daily lives of the soldiers of the Serenissima Republic of Venice. It examines the various specialties of the infantry, cavalry, transport engineers, and artillery -- both in the countryside and on the galleys and galleasses.
A chapter is reserved for women soldiers, wives, partners, and prostitutes, who shared the hard life of their men. There are many curiosities from the evolution of armament to payroll, from food to clothing.
The precise and colorful plates of Pietro comrades, then, give us a vivid picture of details of the men who fought in the ranks of the Venetian forces in that distant and sometimes forgotten century. Includes 24 color plates (with English summary).
