Great info.... although it is a book about war across a whole century and therefore convoluted and very broad....i would liked to see them focus down and concentrate on one or two really interesting battles, a little more in depth. But other than that, a great concise little read for people trying to get a handle on the depressing, disease ridden, battles of religion and attrition that made up the 17th century.
Nice Overview of 17th Century Warfare

This lavishly illustrated book provides a nice overview of the complex series of wars that comprised the 17th Century. The book briefly covers the 30 Years War, the English Civil Wars, and the wars of mid-century, as well as the wars of Louis XIV. There is even a chapter that discusses the wars outside europe. The pictures and maps are really what make this book nice. The text is concise and to the point. The only drawback here might be the often cursory attention paid to some topics. To cover an entire century of complex warfare in one slender volume is bound to leave many gaps. Still, the reader will find a nice introuction to this period, and can use this book as a stepping stone to move on elsewhere in readings.
Quite excellent! Tackles the subject from a myriad of angles
9 February 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Quite excellent! Tackles the subject from a myriad of angles: political, technological, military, economic, and cultural, to name a few. Very good resource for a relatively, not too popular time period that was crucial for understanding the evolution in military affairs between the early Renaissance and the dawn of 18th century warfare. I would highly recommend this book as both a primer and moderate depth exposition on the subject. Excellent for the historian, lay or professional, and war game designers.

Don't buy this crushing bore!

Nice pictures from the era, but this is mainly a listing of the many wars with very little meat on the bone. It was terribly boring, and I love European history! Other books in this series are far better, especially Renaissance at War.
