Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE THIRTY YEARS WAR by C V Wedgwood.

This is a Folio Society hardback in new condition, in its original slip case.

"A book which is, and will long remain, the standard authority on the subject…I doubt if there is anything in any European language which covers the ground so comprehensively and so satisfactorily."
- The Spectator (UK)

"Wedgwood tells a story supremely well….she is by far the best narrative historian writing in the English language."
— Lawrence Stone

"God, I love this book. It’s the history of an utterly depressing war with no real nobility that ultimately descends into cannibalism.” —Ta-Nehisi Coates, "My 10 Favourite Books," New York Times Style Magazine

"The greatest narrative historian of the twentieth century, Wedgwood told complex stories in precise, human terms. The formal perfection and clarity of her prose often recall the work of one of her heroes, Edward Gibbon. The Thirty Years War shows her at her epic best."
— Anthony Grafton

From Wikipedia:
