From the Thirty Years' War to the campaigns of Louis XIV, a richly detailed picture emerges from this narrative. Military life and structure in the 1600s -- its conflicts and conduct, the rise of a standing army, the difficulties posed by reliance on paid soldiers, the changing weaponry, the politics are covered, and through it all, the relentless world shift from ancient to modern.Hide synopsis

This series of books are really good as they have sufficient detail to provide all of the background information to the period and the text is allied to a widecrange of illustrations that really illuminate the text. I am a war gamer and these volumes provide an excellent basis for understanding a period and the essentials that distinguish the politics and tactics of the era.
