Review Quotes
"In this brief but comprehensive book, Jeremy Black provides a broad survey of contemporary historical scholarship on military history. He gives persuasive arguments that the concept of a European Military Revolution determined by weapons and tactics is too narrow an approach to both military history and the role of violence and warfare in history. The political, cultural, organizational, and logistical aspects of warfare have been underestimated, but that also makes them especially fruitful for future studies. This should be an essential resource for scholars and students alike."

"Jeremy Black ranks as a premier historian of early modern warfare. Prolific, insightful, and almost always provocative, he has stood outside orthodox interpretations of European military history and forced us all to rethink received knowledge and extend our horizons."
