Renaissance armies, 1480-1650 (Repost)


George Gush - Renaissance armies, 1480-1650
Patrick Stephens | 1975 | ISBN: 0850592054 | English | 133 pages | PDF | 119.17 MB

Beginning with an account of the general development of infantry, cavalry, and artillery weapons during the period 1480 to 1650, this book then goes on to describe every major nation, from France and Spain to Sweden and the Netherlands; Ottoman Turkey and Persia to Muscovy and Poland. In each case the origins, strengths, basic organization, uniforms, flags, and weapons are described as fully as possible within the limitations of surviving manuscripts and illustrations which the author, himself a history lecturer, has delved deeply to discover. The book thus opens up a completely new aspect of one of the most significant periods of Western history—the Renaissance.
