History of the Thirty Years War, Volume 1

Friedrich SCHILLER (1759 - 1805), translated by Rev. Alexander James William MORRISON (1806 - 1865)

The History of the Thirty Years War is a five volume work, which followed his very successful History of the Revolt of the Netherlands. Written for a wider audience than Revolt, it is a vivid history, colored by Schiller’s own interest in the question of human freedom and his rationalist optimism. Volume 1 covers the background of the war, through the Battle of Prague in late 1620. (Introduction by Alan Winterrowd)
