Product description


"The book is clearly written and well organized...Excellent treatment of recruitment and fascinating sociological material also help make this the most useful extended exercise in new military history yet to appear."
-"European History Quarterly
"An excellent example of how to present the most up to date research in a field...The book is an example of 'new military history' which studies armies and war in the context of historical society."
-"Historical Journal
"The reader will find here numerous telling quotations, interesting facts and instructive insights."
-"English Historical Review
"Tallett's book is rich, detailed, systematic, and a model of clear, well-constructed writing. He blends a range of sources and references deftly. As a text or reader for early modern history courses, this instructive work is a perfect introduction to the new military history- or to just plain fine scholarship."
-"Sixteenth Century Journal


This text aims to set warfare in social and institutional contexts. Focusing on the early-modern period in western Europe, Frank Tallett gives an insight into the armies and shows how warfare had an impact on different social groups, as well as on the economy and on patterns of settlement.
