Thirty Years War

In my Early Modern Europe course, we have reached the Thirty Years War, which consumed the energy of the powers of 17th century Europe and devastated Germany, the main battleground (see map above). Our in-class time is devoted to the devastation, and very light on the politics and campaigns. I thought it might be nice to refer you to a website where those of you who want "the history of events" could get a feeling for what we are neglecting in class. The site's by Chris Atkinson. Thanks for your efforts, Chris!
