Description: From 17th-century combat on horse and by hand to nuclear bombs dropped from high-tech aircraft, from guerrilla groups to national armies, from heated battles to cold wars, the History of Warfare series helps you understand the conflicts that have shaped our world. Edited by one of the world's most distinguished military historians and filled with full-color maps, rare photographs, and illustrations, these three volumes capture military tactics in the war room and out on the field. Please refer to our order form for a complete list of titles in this series.

During the 17th century, technological evolutions in fortifications and arms meant that wars grew longer, armies larger, and military formations more disciplined. Yet, militias remained primarily mercenary; although armaments developed from the pike to the socket bayonet and uniforms began to appear, professionalism remained low. From the multifaceted conflicts of the Thirty Years' War to the campaigns of Louis XIV, a richly detailed picture emerges of military life and structure in the 1600s -- its conflicts and conduct, the rise of a standing army, the difficulties posed by reliance on paid soldiers, the changing weaponry, the politics overseeing it all, and the relentless world shift from ancient to modern.
