Medieval Warfare Vol VI, Issue 2: Two Kings Duelling - The War of the Sicilian Vespers .
Focuses on one of the most important wars in the Mediterranean during
the Middle Ages, a clash that helped undermine the political authority
of the Holy Roman Emperors, and the moral authority of the Papacy,
while also causing devastation in the formerly prosperous areas of
southern Italy and Sicily. This was a very varied war, with naval
battles, political crusades and even a potential duel between the two
original claimants to Sicily. Also looks at the Anarchy, the battle of
Shrewsbury and the Anglo-Scottish conflict..
