The Thirty Years' War
By

Rating

The first edition of The Thirty Years' War
offered an unrivalled survey of a central period in European history. Drawing on a huge body of source material from different languages and countries throughout Europe, it provided a clear and comprehensive narrative
and analytical account of the subject. It has established itself as the classic text with reviewers, students and the general reader. This second edition has been thoroughly revised to include the very latest research. The updated bibliographical information provides an invaluable resource, synthesising the major work in the field, in all languages, up to 1996. The book covers the horrors of the war and the contorted politics of the period. It deals with all the major figures, including Wallerstein and Richelieu, Gustavus Adolphus and Tilly, the Winter King and the Habsburg emperors. For range and depth of coverage there is no other work like it. It has become the definitive book on the subject. Contributors: Simon Adams, Gerhard Benecke, Richard Bonney, John H. Elliott, R.J.W. Evans, Christopher R. Friedrichs, Bodo Nischan, Geoffrey Parker, E. Ladewig Petersen, Michael Roberts.
