Military Intellectual and Battle, The
Raimondo Montecuccoli and the Thirty Years War
An analysis of Montecuccoli's life, battles, and politics leads into a more detailed sociological, intellectual, psychological, and tactical analysis of contributions made by the Italian mercenary general, chief founder of the modern Austrian army. Included is a translation of his treatsie "Sulle battaglie," in which Montecuccoli stresses the important considerations before, during, and after battle. Professor Barker then explicates the four most significant battles of this great military strategist during the Thirty Years War. Maps, diagrams, charts, index.
