Sir Charles Oman’s The 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 VIII’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.
