Product Description


A lot of trouble has been taken to give genuinely helpful guides to the student on how to approach the chapters and how to take notes...Any one who conscientiously followed the advised method would certainly end up able to get good marks on the subject...Darby's clear, common sense approach is a strength of his book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great learning tool ! 5 Feb 2002
This small book explains in plain language the background and all the major events of the Thirty Years' War. It has a degree of clarity in its explanations rarely seen in a historical study. There are a number of graphics which make the whole subject very clear to any student of the period. There are character descriptions of all the major protagonists whcih are useful to the general reader. All in all, an excellent read and a wonderful addition to any history of the period.
