The Battle of the White Mountain 1620 & the Bohemian Revolt

Battle of White Mountain

The Battle of the White Mountain and the Bohemian Revolt 1618-1622 looks not only at the battle of the White Mountain, but also the campaigns and events leading up to the battle, such as the Bohemian Army's march on Vienna, the sieges of Pilsen and Bautzen, and the battle of Zablat. These events are often described using the words of the protagonists themselves. It also examines the armies that took part in these campaigns, the soldiers from which came not only from Bohemia, but also Britain, the Dutch Republic, France, the Holy Roman Empire, Hungary, Poland, Spain, the Spanish Netherlands and Transylvania.

Battle of White Mountain

However, even before the battle of the White Mountain, the seeds had been sewn for the war to last 30 years, and such was the Emperor Ferdinand's Counter-Reformation policy that when the sword which executed some Bohemian rebels went on display in the 19th Century, it had to be removed for fear of a public disturbance, and has been compared with the occupation of Czechoslovakia by Nazi Germany in 1938. Therefore, this book is essential reading to anyone interested in the wars of the early 17th Century, not just the Thirty Years War.
