    DescriptionThe 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.

    Review quote
    ..."with this book as our guide, we are now in a position to understand more fully the long 'European Civil War' which did much to shape the course of the history of the continent as a whole."-"History Today "This new book...is most welcome: thorough, scholarly, up-to-date, it makes the murky period as clear as anything ever will...It is a swift-moving general account that misses no essentials, while not allowing itself to get bogged down in details."-"Wilson Library Bulletin "The book successfully provides a clear and balanced...explanation of what happened between 1618 and 1648...this is political history in the classic mold."-"The Sixteenth Century Journal "The best book we have on the Thirty Years' War."-"History Teaching Review "A judicious, lively, enlightening and, above all, highly serviceable work for which scholars, students and the general public will be grateful."-"Times Literary Supplement
