These books arrived in excellent condition, but I have not yet finished reading them, or reasons unconnected with the books themselves


Thirty Years War

by coltrane on Nov 19, 2009

Excellent comprehensive view of a critical period in European history. . . fascinating take on various central figures, i.e. Emperor Ferdinand, Wallenstein. . . . exceptionally well written, even though the subject is complicated. . .stay with it and the confusions dissipate. . .


Diffficult but good

by Silas on Mar 12, 2009

Reads like the history book it is. If you want an understanding of the 30 Year War in Germany this is the book for you. It is helpful it you have a good map of Germany in the time beside you as you read.


A genuine tour de force

by Lector on May 13, 2007

The history of the 30 years was written by Dame C.V. Wedgwood, a distinguished historian of the Inter-War years. It is a very successful attempt to cover the complexity of those thirty years and shows a remarkable grasp of detail and a searching analysis of the major issues involved. No doubt Revisionist historians have since made their re-assessments but any reasonable critic would see this book as a genuine tour de force.
