Samma upplägg som boken för medeltiden: övergripande info blandat med berättelser om olika slag. Här fungerar det lite sämre, eftersom slagskildringarna blir lite väl långa och man tröttnar. Å andra sidan är varje enskilt kapitel mer logiskt uppbyggt med strikt kausalitet, även om det blir hoppigt mellan de olika kapitlen. Andra minus inkluderar just "stormaktstiden" (dubbelfel: dels kan begreppet bara användas för svensk historia (även om Sverige hade det tvivelaktiga nöjet att för en tid vara föregångsland inom det militära), dels skildrar boken en längre tidsperiod än så) och allmänt slarv (Moritz av Oranien får se sitt namn stavat med både z och s, ibland i samma stycke).
