Historians have long ignored the military aspect of the French wars of religion. In contrast, The King's Army--a meticulously researched analysis of the royal army during the early civil wars--brings warfare back to the center of the picture. The King's Army makes an important contribution to the history of military forces, warfare, religion and society in France, and will be of great interest to those engaged in the debate over the "Military Revolution" in early modern Europe.

Review:

"Thanks to its felicitous style and plentiful tables, graphs, and charts, this book will appeal to the general reader interested in military history, as well as to the specialist because of its rich detail and an excellent appendix of sources for each of the first five wars." J.E. Brink, Choice

"...an intelligent, wonderfully nuanced consideration of the profound problems that the early modern French state faced....[a] ground-breaking study that provides both a wealth of data mined from archival material and an important assessment of the development of the French army....likely to become the standard work for years to come." History: Review of New Books

"a major contribution to the debate over the military revolution in early modern Europe." Paul C. Allen, Sixteenth Century Journal

"It is an important contribution to sixteenth century studies." Daniel Hickey, H-Net Reviews

"The book is well organized and well written....Wood has made a first rate contribution to both the social history of warfare and and to our knowledge of military organization and institutions in sixteenth-century France....the book is almost an example of micro-history with its fascinating thematic and socio-economic analyses. It is an important contribution to sixteenth century studies." M.J. Carley, H-Net

"...an importnat contribution to sixteenth century studies." Daniel Hickey, H-Net Reviews

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Historians have long ignored the military aspect of the wars of religion which raged in France during the late sixteenth century, dismissing the conflicts as aimless or hopelessly confused. In contrast, this meticulously researched analysis of the royal army and its operations during the early civil wars brings warfare back to the centre of the picture. James B. Wood explains the reasons for the initial failure of the monarchy to defeat the Huguenots, and examines how that failure prolonged the conflict. He argues that the nature and outcome of the civil wars can only be explained by the fusion of religious rebellion and incomplete military revolution. This study makes an important contribution to the history of military forces, warfare and society, and will be of great interest to those engaged in the debate over the Military Revolution in early modern Europe.
