A History of the Art of War in the Sixteenth Century
-- The best account of sixteenth-century warfare
-- By the author of A History of the Peninsular War
This is an unrivalled account of sixteenth-century warfare, in which Sir Charles Oman covers the Great Wars of 1494-1559; Henry VllI's continental wars; the French Wars of Religion, 1562-98; the Dutch war of independence, 1568-1603; and the Turkish offensive against Christendom.
Contemporary maps illustrate many of the actions, and add to the value of this brilliant and lucid history of the art of war.
