Item description for Battle of San Romano: A Day in History by Petra Pertici...

The Battle of San Romano was fought on June 1, 1432. Had it not been celebrated in Paolo Uccello's famous pictorial cycle (now split between the National Gallery in London, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence and the Louvre), it would probably be remembered today by only a handful of scholars. The episode formed part of a larger conflict, the so-called 'War of Lucca', of which Machiavelli famously wrote: 'The Florentines, Lucchese and Sienese, who had each occupied many fortresses belonging to the others during the war, eventually gave them all up, each party resuming its original possessions'. The author's reconstruction of this conflict and thorough examination of available sources (including new unpublished documents) shed light on many unresolved issues. Official records, private memoirs, chronicles and a wealth of illustrations guide the reader through a seemingly endless gallery of characters. Against the backdrop of the war between Florence and Siena, an elusive diplomatic web is woven involving
