Die Reichskreise im Dreißigjährigen Krieg
[The Imperial Circles in the Thirty Years War]
Series:bibliothek altes Reich 23
Aims and Scope
German history has viewed the Thirty Years War as an epoch of decline and collapse of all political order. However, this point of view needs correction, at least with respect to the Imperial Circles. The study shows the great relevance of the Imperial Circles for financing the war and for collaboration between belligerents over the course of the conflict.
