About this book
A history of Renaissance Italy, charting the lives and works of Leonardo da Vinci, Niccolo Machiavelli and Cesare Borgia. From the author of "Napoleon In Egypt".
In the autumn of 1502 three giants of the Renaissance period - Cesare Borgia, Leonardo da Vinci and Niccolo Machiavelli - set out on one of the treacherous military campaigns of the period. This work focuses on this collusion of three iconic figures of the Italian Renaissance to unite three mighty strands of the period - war, politics and art.
