The Hundred Years' War is over and newly-knighted Sir John Hawkswood is headed for France to make his fortune as a freebooter.
Violence and extortion are rife, and the freebooters will stop at nothing to capture the Papal City of Avignon.
This is only the beginning: Italy beckons, and with it, yet more battles against rival mercenaries, powerful cities and the Papal State.
