Description

All is lost save Honour is a game about the campaigns fought during the Italian Wars (1494-1530), mainly between the Hapsburgs (the Empire) and the Valois (the French kingdom). This first volume is dedicated to the campaigns between Agnadello (1509) and Pavia (1525).

They had to make a selection of all those campaigns fought in Italy during the Italian Wars. The five campaigns they have included are:

  • Agnadello 1509, Venice defends its Republic against her foes.
  • Novara 1513, the Swiss against the French army. The last triumph of the Swiss.

  • Bicocca 1522, the French lose the Duchy of Milan
  • Pavia 1525, Franois I loses the largest battle and Milan to the Empire

    This is the time of charges of cavalrymen with the finest gliding amours; of the first use of effective firearms and artillery; sieges, mercenary troops, treachery, pillaging and all that chrome that may enlighten a wargame.
