This course will look at the development of warfare in early modern Europe in the light of the theory that Europe in this period saw a military revolution which had profound effects not just on the way wars were fought, but on European state formation and social development. It will look at the supporters and opponents of the theory, examine the technological changes seen in warfare in this period, and consider the conduct of war at the tactical and strategic levels, before going on to examine the changing culture of war and its impact on state and society.
