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.… (mais)

The Thirty Years War is a complex subject. This book reveals how so. A good historical map of Germany and the Hapsburg lands is a necessity to help unravel the alliances, made and broken. The political manoeuvrings are tortuous, made for the most part by rulers who placed preservation of their homeland at a premium.
Chapter VI (The war in myth, legend and history) is an excellent summary and is reward for perseverance in having read so far. Parker places the War as one of the central factors in the "General Crisis" of the XVII Century, along with climate change, but is careful to point out that all the possible factors would not cause a war to last thirty years. He concludes that political paralysis, exacerbated by endless warfare contributed to the destitution, hideous injury and economic exhaustion of this disaster.
Excellent contribution to the paucity of histories in English on this subject.

I always complained that books needed more maps- More than enough for people who think as I do. Maps, charts and notes, along with notes to maps and charts. tough read but a lot of information. as one of the reviews stated "not for a casual reader." ( )

Muy bueno, por fin entiendo porque paso y que paso luego de la guerra de los 30 años.-
Tomo el mundo habla de la Paz de Westfalia y me parece que pocos tienen idea, Parecería que el status quo fue el miedo a repetir el desastrey no la pericia de los Diplomáticos y las habilidades políticas ( )

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.
