Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The First Great conflict of the Reformation era was the German Peasants Revolt,the war was actually not one seamless event,but a series of essentially uncoordinated regional revolts inspired by radical preachers, many peasants bands across southern Germany rose up becoming small armies sometimes with the help of some Landsknechts,disaffected knights and mercenary soldiers, at the end the ill-equipped and the short of mounted men help the Swabian League to suppress the revolt.
Excellent plates by Angus McBride of the Peasant Banners as well of the League,photographs of costume and armour, it's all here,this is a useful addition to the library of anyone interested in the "BUNDSCHUH" conspiracy(the shoe was the symbol of the Rebels),this is a simply wonderful book, small but the content by Mr. Miller is an excellent introduction, this is a most interesting and rewarding read of a less know Revolt of the Renaissance,highly informative.
Related Books "Landsknecht Soldier 1486-1560"(Warrior 49)by John Harald Richards for tactics of the Renaissance are check "Pavia 1525,The Climax of the Italian Wars"(Campaign 44)by Angus Konstam, another one is "The Renaissance At War" by Thomas Arnold is a look into the major conflicts,wars,tactics and a little bit of everything fron the series Cassell's History of Warfare, more campaign books by Osprey treat Renaissance Warfare like "Fornovo 1495,France's Bloody Fighting Retreat"(Campaign 43).

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an absorbing summary of an obscure, yet savagely fought series of conflicts fought in the mid 1520's in Germany. As always, Mr. McBride's artwork is top-notch, and depicts the soldiers of both the peasant and Loyalist armies doing battle, as well as the flags of the various participating factions. As with the contemporary Landsknechts, many of the warriors on both sides were known especially for their malice, debauchery, and their colorful (and sometimes grotesque) clothing styles.

Well first off, the plates are by the legendary Angus McBride, a heroic illustrator. Then there's the whole peasants tired of the church, the wealthy and powerful, and a generally bad life. Mix in mercenaries on all sides, and you can see just how unhappy this part of the world has been for a long time.
