Subject:        Who was fighting?

Having recently read Much Ado About Nothing again, I am wondering on
what basis some other readers have concluded that the battle the men are
returning from (in Act 1) was between forces for Don Pedro and forces
for Don John? I hope I'm not being dense, but I don't see that indicated
in the text. I am, of course, noting Leonato's comment that the brothers
have recently been reconciled? Does that make them the combatants?
