This is the abridged version, half the length of the original, but still too long. I am sure it could be edited down to a mere 500 pages. The information is good and it is a remarkable story, the combination of climate disasters and war leading to catastrophe beyond anything seen since.

This is the book, or at least one of the books, I should have read before tackling Parker's better known The Army of Flanders and the Spanish Road - a concise narrative history of the revolt (or rather revolts) of the Netherlands to the truce of 1609.

This is deservedly a classic.

A tip, though, for those who, like me, could use a refresher on the narrative history before tackling the logistical meat of Parker's study: read the conclusion first, as it does contain a brief account of the course of the wars fought by the Army of Flanders during the period covered.
