The Century of the Soldier series covers the period of military history c. 1618–1721, the ‘golden era’ of Pikeand Shot warfare. This time frame has been seen by many historians as a period of not only great social change, but of fundamental developments within military matters. This is the period of the ‘military revolution’, the development of standing armies, the widespread introduction of black powder weapons and a greater professionalism within the culture of military personnel. The series examines the period in a greater degree of detail than has hitherto been attempted, and has a very wide brief, with the intention of covering all aspects of the period from the battles, campaigns, logistics and tactics, to the personalities, armies, uniforms and equipment.
