Summary
This book takes a fresh approach to military history. Rather than looking at tactics and strategy, descriptions of campaigns and the technical side of warfare, it aims to set warfare in social and institutional contexts. Focusing on the early-modern period in western Europe, Frank Tallett gives an insight into what it must have been like to live and fight in the armies of the time. He shows how warfare had an impact on different social groups, on the economy and on patterns of settlement. He examines too the implications of war for the grotwh of state power, suggesting why some state proved much more successful than others at waging war
