Summary
The Eighty Years War (1567-1659) has been the subject of important monographs but the high command of the Army of Flanders, which played a decisive role in the making of Spanish strategy and was in charge of its tactics, has eluded scrutiny. This work examines the culture, class structure, and combat effectiveness of the largest army of its day
