Medieval Warfare VI.2 (PDF)
An incident between French soldiers and a Sicilian wedding party would lead to a massive revolt on the island. Known as the War of the Sicilian Vespers, this struggle would determine dominance in the Mediterranean Sea. Our issue tells the story of the war on land and sea, and the rivalry between Peter of Aragon and Charles of Anjou. Read also about the Battle of Shrewsbury in 1403, how King Edward I besieged Caerlaverock Castle in 1300, and the clash in 12th-century England between two ladies named Matilda.
