Still the starting point in English for any study of this very, very important conflict. ( )
  rnsulentic | May 30, 2016 |
Nice, compact overview, treating the underlying political and social issues as well as the history of the military campaigns. Makes it clear that there was a lot more going on than a simple matter of Catholics vs. Protestants, but it does also give a strong impression that the author's sympathies lie mostly with the Catholic side.

Brings clarity and thorough scholarship to these complex events. It is a fine blend of descriptive and analytical history.

Performs the near miracle of giving a portrait and an explanation of a large and long event of immense complexity and enormous importance in only 330 pages.

Epigraph
Dedication
For Jack Plumb
First words
A casual visitor to the Netherlands in the summer of 1549 would have been astonished to find in every major town a series of triumphal arches, large and splendid, some depicting mythological subjects or classical stories, others showing scenes of martial exploits. Plays were staged by the local 'chambers of rhetoric'; processions and presentations took place; there were lion-fights and bull-fights; the chivalric romance of Amadis of Gaul was acted out in the grounds of the castle of Binche and special illustrated books were commissioned to describe all the festivities.
