Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The second son of a minor Essex landowner, John Hawkwood chose to head south in 1360 after serving as a captain in the Black Prince's wars against France. He and other freebooters besieged the Pope at Avignon, and when they were paid to go to Italy, discovered that the threat of force could be very profitable indeed. Hawkwood became the most successful mercenary leader of the time - immortalised after death by Paolo Uccello's fresco in the Duomo. This is the story of an age when everything came to have a price. But above all, Hawkwood is a brilliant illumination of one of the outstanding figures of English and European history.

About the Author:

Frances Stonor Saunders is the author of the bestselling Hawkwood, and of Who Paid the Piper?, a cultural history of the Cold War that has been translated into ten languages and was awarded the Royal Historical Society's Gladstone Memorial Prize. Her most recent book is The Woman who Shot Mussolini. Her writing has appeared in the Guardian, the New Statesman and Arete. She lives in London.
