Are there any good FWOR books in French that go into the nuts and bolts of the campaigns, the battles, the troop types, the outfits and flags in the manner that military enthusiasts and wargamers like?

I may already have mentioned link – which is just after the Wars of Religion, but does feature Henri IV. A good read.

Are there any good ones in English for those that don't speak French.

There's Howell A. Lloyd's "The Rouen Campaign, 1590-92: Politics, Warfare and the Early Modern State" (1973). But surprisingly little on other, more important campaigns, nor on the wars in general.

There's an Osprey Essential Histories – link – but I haven't read it, no idea whether it's any good or not.
