    Good but suprisingly dry considering the subject matter vendetta and factional violence interspersed with actual warfare in the Venetian territory of Friuli building up to the Cruel Carnival with its attendant massacres lootings peasant uprsings arson and assorted atrocities including a good bit of feeding victims bodies to dogs or pigs and in at least one incident both animals simultaneously in 1511 The author also covers the aftermath social political and judicial of the incident as well as the culture of vendetta itself possessing its own legends and symbolism and the eventual decline of vendetta and the rise of formalized dueling in the region

    The book gives the reader a proper insight of the events that led to the Blood Carnival in Udine and the later outcomes of the same event In itself the event itseld is not important however without it a researcheracademic wouldn't have the motivation of looking into deep on the reasons and conseuences this bloodshed consitutes within the Reneissance time and the area of patria del FriuliCertainly a must read especially for scholarsadacemicsresearchers of Early Modern Europe and ReneissancePS There is also an Italian version of the same text and another Italian author wrote about the same event of course in Italian and his book is translated into Slovene as well

    As it turns out vendettas were pretty badass This book's a pretty good read and not too difficult at all If you're a sucker for the darker side of history this is probably right up your alley

    Generally pretty good would have given it 35 stars if I could A little too much on the imagery of dogs eating corpses for true bedtime reading though
