I'm still planning on starting this after I retire, my job won't let me at the moment.

It would go nicely with the "Ancient Warfare" and "Medieval Warfare" already in print if it was of that quality and research level.

I would be interested if it covered the Americas.

given the fact that Renaissance is mainly the 16th century, since c.1453/1492, more only early 17th the American military topics seem me quite limited, the Spanish conquest against Aztecs and Incas…

"Renaissance Warfare Magazine" makes me think in Italian Wars, French Religious Wars, first part of the 80 Years War until the truce of 1609, add Ivan the Terrible, Great Armada, Samuraï and wars against Ottomans…

Lilian, I agree that most people think of the conflicts you mentioned when speaking about wars that fall under the renaissance umbrella. That said, there were campaigns in Mexico that involved more than just the Aztecs, and there is a lot of potential for subject matter throughout Central and South America.
