That’s the bibliography of this article from Wired, on “first canon fired in battle, maybe.” Darn. I wish I could get away with that sometimes. It would come in really handy for those cases when I lose a footnote in the shuffling of drafts…

As for the factual stuff, there is actually little indication that the “canon” made much of a difference to the Genoese. At least from what I’ve seen. Read Ayton’s edited volume on Crecy, or the archery articles in Villalon and Kagay’s new volume on the Hundred Years War.
