Battle of Marignano by EthicallyChallenged Battle of Marignano by EthicallyChallenged
Another illustration for the Medieval Warfare Magazine.

This one depicts a very interesting moment in history, when firearms were a major factor in dealing a devastating blow. In order not to bore you to death: from then on, a lot less cutting, stabbing and galloping, and a lot bore bang-bang and boom-boom.

First the art is gorgeous.

Please tell me this magazine can be purchased in the USA, I would love to find a well-done magazine covering medieval military history.

It was geographically located in Italy yes, part of the "Italian Wars" but the opponent of the French was the Old Swiss Confederacy. The Swiss pikemen were a formidable force that ruled the battlefields during the late 15th c. C.E. The Burgundian War (1470), the Swabian War (1499) and then the fight against the Duchy of Milano that triggered French intervention are examples of their bravery.

Their rule came to an end when the French used their cannons against the tightly packed pike squares. Then the "softened" Swiss formations were easier game for the French king and his "Gens d'Armes" to charge in.

Having guns is not all. Having them AND properly placing, manoeuvering and using it, is all. :-)

This is incredible. I'm actually feeling privileged just by getting to see it.
