This is one the books that once you start reading you can't stop until you are finished.
It is written chronologically with good context description and insight into the various political ramifications that the princes and generals faced. It is not as detailed oriented on the tactics and numbers used in the different battles, but it makes up for it with it details about the different scenarious and events that occurred as a pretext for the wars and the events during the wars. It is also an excellent book for understanding and detailing the different actors central to the wars, who they were and what their agendas were.
I read this book through a perspective of power maximization theory for nation building which this book helped substantiate to a large degree.
Recommended to anyone interested in european history.
