War, State and Society in Early Modern Europe any good?

I've read some online reviews. But i trust my fellow TMPer more.

It's Michael Mallett so yes, it'll be good. I don't have this volume but the co-write he did with Hale of The Military Organisation of a Renaissance State : Venice C. 1400 to 1617 is one of the best books I've ever read.

He also wrote Mercenaries and Their Masters which is a pretty essential read for the Condottieri.

Very good. Highly recommended.

Actually it was started by Michael Mallett and finished, considerably, by Christine Shaw.

However, it is a good read and well worth the dollars.

Good read. Get it if you are interested in that history. Way better then some older works, especially in the details.

It's good. A bit condensed (I think they had a hard word limit), but definitely worth having.
