Dutch Armies of the 80 Years’ War 1568–1648 (1): Infantry (Men-at-Arms) summary Ô eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Bouko de Groot Î 8 characters read Dutch Armies of the 80 Years’ War 1568–1648 (1): Infantry (Men-at-Arms) NThe 80 Years' War also known as the Dutch War of Independence was the foundation of Dutch nationhood and during the course of the conflict one of its main leaders Maurice of Orange Nassau created an army and a tactical system that became a model throughout Europe This study the first of a two part series focuses on the Dutch infantry It examines how Maurice of Orange Nassau attracted volunteers and students from across Europe introduced innovative new training methods such as common drill movements and standardised the organisation and payment system of the army to make it than a match for the occupying Spanish His successes inspired officers and generals across the continent to copy his methods including many English officers who went on to fight in the English Civil Wars Featuring full colour artwork and rare period illustrations this book examines how the Dutch infantry was transformed into a fighting force able to defeat the might of Imperial Spa. An incredibly disappointing book that would have been so much better from someone with a deeper knowledge of the period but perhaps even if the manuscript had been proof read for errors and contradictions we would have had some greatly superiorOn page 15 we are told that the musket had roughly half the rate of firing of that of a caliver This is uite simply a Victorian myth As any reenactor with experience would uickly demonstrate the rate of fire for both is actually very little different at two to three rounds a minute if you wanted to use your very limited ammunition that fast Worth nothing that it also little different from the rate of fire of a Napoleonic infantrymanOn page 23 the author states Wheellocks sic and snaphaunces were expressly forbidden actually I would contend that wheelock muskets were never used in the field by the soldiery anyway far too expensive and even snaphaunces were probably uite rare but on page 37 he goes on to state that the surviving firearms from the 1640s are predominantly flintlocks something which is blatantly untrue as any visit to a military collection from the period will swiftly demonstrate the matchlock remained the principal firearm for another half century Incidentally whilst all snaphaunces are flintlocks not all flintlocks are snaphaunces which somewhat complicates matters and then further down the same page that flintlocks were issued at 15 per company or 20 per cent of their firearms Obviously not all of these statements CAN be accurate and a serious re read of the manuscript would have seen some correction of the contradictionsSo far as the sections on drill are concerned I can do no better that recommend the book by Keith Roberts of Pike and Shot Tactics also from Osprey but the concept of all ten ranks of a battalions firing at one page 23 is so ludicrous as to be laughable given the renowned inaccuracy of the musket caused mainly by windage is has to be said this would simply result in dozens of casualties amongst the first few ranksA great deal of the book seems to be based on contemporary military theorists without any reference to what actually happened in the field rather than in the mind of the Armchair GeneralIt was also sad to see the resurrection of long discredited ideas such as The Twelve Apostles for the musketeer s bandolier of charges this was a Nineteenth Century fiction which has no earlier provenance and has long since been abandoned by most students of the 17th Century militaryThe English language is crying out for a study of the Dutch Army of the 80 Years War but sadly this isn t it Also sadly it has no competition in English so we will have to accept the small use that it is until something better comes along

I must agree with a previous reviewer that this book could have been a lot better if the author had a thorough understanding of the subject Engagement with some of the Spanish sources for example would have shown that Maurice s reforms were far from revolutionary but had already existed in some form since the beginning of the 16th century
