Description

Tuscany, 1259. Crafts, trade, and finance have built the wealth of Italy's urban families up to that of the landed lords. But rivalries within and among their cities harden into conflict between two great parties. Ghibellines align with the Hohenstaufen dynasty clinging to rule in Italy, while Guelphs back the Pope as challenger to imperial authority.

Now, as Guelphs grip populous Firenze (Florence) and rebellions and reprisals escalate, Ghibelline Siena asks the King of Sicily to send German knights. Firenze musters its comune (republic) to march on Siena. As Arezzo, Lucca, Bologna, and Orvieto join in, the Sienese field their own great host. They all face off at Montaperti in September 1260 — the result, a bloody Guelph defeat. But when Firenze's Ghibelline exiles return home as masters, her Guelphs rally to Lucca and Arezzo, portending an eternal conflagration.

Inferno — the third volume in Volko Ruhnke's Levy & Campaign Series — fires up the cauldron 13th-Century Tuscan warfare, factional conflict fueled by the gold florins and teeming populations of up-and-coming cities and well-to-do valleys. Expert Italian wargame designer Enrico Acerbi brings the age to life within Volko's accessible medieval-operation system. Gathering transport and provender may not be as much the challenge here as the sudden treachery of rebel towns and castles along key roads. Italy's plundering berrovieri horsemen, famed elite crossbowmen, and distinctive palvesari shield bearers are just a few of the unique inhabitants of this volume. Muster, mount up, and find out whose blood will make the Arbia run red!
