This issue of Medieval Warfare explores the Burgundian Wars that were fought in Western Europe in the late 15th century AD. The conflict pitted two relatively small powers against each other in a curious and largely avoidable war. Still, the defeat of Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, at the hands of the Swiss Confederacy would have major implications for the future of Europe.
