Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'One of the great strengths of the book ... derives from this expansive coverage of the time period. While the title clearly indicates that the focus is on European warfare, Black spends considerable time discussing both naval developments and the expansion of Europe's influence overseas. This exposure offers Black the opportunity to apply his theory to a broad range of topics, giving it a depth that the Military Revolution thesis seems to lack'.Sixteenth Century Journal
