A History of the Art of War in the Sixteenth Century
Written in English.
THE military history of the fifteenth century may be described, not inaccurately, as being shut up in many water-tight compartments-(1) The wars of the English and the French ; (2) the wars of the Castilians with their neighbours of Granada, Portugal, and Aragon ; (3) the wars of the Italian States with each other, all waged by proxy with hired bands of condottieri ; (4) the wars of the Hussites with the Germans and Hungarians ; (5) the wars of the Kings of Hungary with the Ottoman Sultans, or with their Austrian neighbours ; (6) the wars of the Russians with their former masters, the Tartars of the Steppes ; (7) the continual bickering of the Danes and Swedes ; (8) the aggressive wars of the Swiss Confederates with the Hapsburgs, the Lords of Milan, and later with the Duke of Burgundy.
