3.0 out of 5 stars Good but heavy, February 8, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Thirty Years War (New York Review Books Classics) (Paperback)
I agree with other reviewers that the book contains a lot of useful information. But this is really _a lot_. The book is overcharged with names and dates, and, especially, with references. I'm not a professional historian, rather, an amateur, maybe that's why the book was quite heavy for me. Another problem, though quite subjective, is the language. For me, as non-native English speaker, the author tends to use too complex (though excellent!) English phrases which makes the book quite difficult for quick and comprehensive understanding.
