Geoffrey Parker is Professor of Military and Naval History at Yale University.Review:
...with this book as our guide, we are now in a position to understand more fully the long 'European Civil War' which did much to shape the course of the history of the continent as a whole.
This new book...is most welcome: thorough, scholarly, up-to-date, it makes the murky period as clear as anything ever will...It is a swift-moving general account that misses no essentials, while not allowing itself to get bogged down in details.
–Wilson Library Bulletin
The book successfully provides a clear and balanced...explanation of what happened between 1618 and 1648...this is political history in the classic mold.
–The Sixteenth Century Journal
The best book we have on the Thirty Years' War.
–History Teaching Review
A judicious, lively, enlightening and, above all, highly serviceable work for which scholars, students and the general public will be grateful.
