    Thirty Years War

    The Thirty Years War: Europe's Tragedy: Peter H. Wilson: 8601417179550: Amazon.com: Books

    I'm currently reading this particular book. I really like the detail that Wilson put in to this.

    So, Spain had issues of her own during this time and the Danes were competing with the Swedes for control of the Baltic. I found the fact that while Catholicism, Lutheranism and Calvinism, competing expressions of Christianity who had periods of ascension and decline in particular territories at particular times were major factors in the Thirty years War, were not the sole causes of it. Politics and social factors also contributed to this war. It also caused such devastation in Germany that it has become the plumb line by which all subsequent disasters were measured.
