An excellent over-view of the Dutch Revolt,
By A Customer
This review is from: William the Silent (Paperback)
This book is a fascinating biography of a truly great man, and a refreshingly readable account of the Revolt of the Netherlands. Wedgwood does, however, at times, lean towards the 'cult' of the individual that is characteristic of historians of her time, but as long as the book is read with this in mind, it is both useful and interesting.
