This book is the first full-length study of the French negotiating position, culminating in the end of a long conflict with the Holy Roman Empire. The author demonstrates that military success and defeat had less effect on the French negotiating position than had been assumed. Instead, the network of alliances not only shaped French policy, but the peace process as a whole, contributing decisively to its longevity.
