War and Society in Early-Modern Europe: 1495-1715
Frank Tallett draws upon the research of French, German, Scandinavian and English scholars to produce an innovative synthesis which illustrates how and why armies of unprecedented size were raised. He explores the ordinary soldier's experience of conflict and his life in the army; reveals how warfare might bring about demographic changes and affect patterns of land tenure; and examines the fiscal implications of war, its impact on different social groups and the economy, and its implications for the growth of state power.
