This is an excellent, detailed narrative of the 30 Years War and describes in evocative language the impact it had on the area that is now Germany. Even though the book was written in 1938, it still reads well and is a worthwhile addition to any library of history.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Wedgwood conveys the events of the 30 Years War down to smallest detail, even including the personality traits of some of the major players in the war. Her prose is absolutely oustanding, in the spirit of Trevelyan. The book covers history, diplomacy, military tactics, geography, and religion; an all around joy to read.Was this review helpful?
