I haven't been following this thread closely, but has anyone yet pointed
out what Don John says of Claudio - "That young start-up hath all the
glory of my overthrow" (1.3.66-7 in Riverside)??

Since Claudio has just done Don Pedro honorably service in battle, it
has always seemed quite obvious to me that the battle WAS between the
Dons. Am I missing something?
