As someone with an interest in many periods of history, I enjoyed this book very much. The use of first hand accounts gives a good feel for the period and the illustrations are excellent. The text is easy to read, and the many illustrations bring the period to life nicely. It is a great book to begin to get an insight into the life of these 16th century mercenaries.
This is an outstanding book, and is the best that I'm aware of in English on this subject, especially given the size limitations of the format. There's a lot packed into this little book. It's well written and certainly fills in the great gaps in my knowledge. Excellent illustrations throughout also.
For anyone interested in this topic I see this as a 'must own'. Highly recommended.
