Reseña del editor
A reprint of Wagner's classic study of the 30 Year's War period
The Thirty Years War, which encompassed the entire European continent, was one of the great watersheds of European history. It was a war which involved religious, political and economic contentions. And it was one which changed the face of Europe irreversibly.
European Weapons and Warfare 1618-1648 is a minutely-detailed survey of the armies of this extraordinary period. It discusses the developments in strategy and organization and demonstrates these with full diagrams. The techniques of hand-to-hand combat, together with edged weapons, hand guns, artillery and fortifications, are clearly illustrated with drawings taken from contemporary pictures and engravings or specially drawn from museum collections. New military ideas emerged in Sweden with King Gustavus II, who personally built up a powerful, well trained and well-armed military force, and these developments spread rapidly during the Thirty Years War, being of great importance too, during Englands Civil War. All of the many nations who took part in the Thirty Years War are examined here their armor and weapons, their military techniques and the organization of their armies.

I will say the book seems to have suffered somewhat in the reproduction process. Several images are unfortunately compressed either horizontally or vertically, or cropped such that the edges of the illustration have been obscured. And without having seen the original, it's hard to judge if the color quality has also been diminished. Certainly there is nothing within so vivid as the front and back cover. That said, the illustrations have a charm of their own with a rather subdued but not unattractive palette, almost as if period images had been filled in with watercolors.
Regardless, this book rates 5 stars based on the quality of the content.
