Overview
"The Fight" is a work of historical fiction. It's the fifteenth century, and the Eastern Mediterranean is at war. The Turkish Empire is ascendant and advancing, the Italian city-states are on their heals. George Sphrantzes is exiled to Southern Greece, as advisor to the Roman Prince, Constantine the Eleventh. It's a dead end assignment, to a backwater province in the decaying Roman Empire. But this Roman Prince has big dreams, and those dreams don't contemplate staying on the defensive, waiting for the Turks to swallow up the last pieces of the Roman Empire in Constantinople and Southern Greece. Then the Hungarians rise in revolt against the Turks, and the world is up for grabs. Join George Sphrantzes and his eye-witness account of the last Roman campaign against the Turks, and the largest siege in the history of the world. Watch the Roman Eagles advance, feel the armored knights charge, smell the gunpowder from a thousand cannons and hear a hundred-thousand Turks charge into the siege of Constantinople. Strap on your sword, and join The Fight!
