Overview

Medieval Military Revolution: State, Society and Military Change in Medieval and Early Modern Europe / Edition 1

War was a major engine of modern state-development in the medieval and early modern periods throughout Europe. While the idea of a military revolution - the creation of modern armies and the centralized state - has been traditionally seen as a 17th-century development, more recent scholarship has placed it in the 16th century and before. The contributors to this book offer perspectives on the early modern period.
