A previous reviewer said this is not for the casual reader. My rating is not reflective of the book itself but of my preference for what I look for in a history book. Reading the Dutch Reformation with particular interest in James Arminius, I thought the Thirty Years War might interest me. Yet, although I was intrigued by how it demonstrates the complexities of this war - or any war - it confused me with its intricate information and details. Chapter 6, part on the 'Universal Soldier', was quite intriging for me. However, this book is for those seriously interested in this partciular subject. Truthfully, it is not for the casual reader.

This is an impossibly rare subject to find covered well in English, and this particular book is some very good coverage. If you ever stumble across it, buy it, even if you don't know or care what century this conflict was fought in; anyone with the mildest interest in military history will be thoroughly engaged. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415128838, Paperback)

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.
Written with great clarity and liveliness, the book brings alive the period in all its aspects. It 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.
