This book was first published in 1972 with a second revised edition in 2004 and it remains the masterpiece that it was some forty years ago It is a remarkable piece of scholarship and exhibits considerable research through the records across Europe not only the Spanish archivesHaving mentioned this it may not be for beginners To put it slightly differently this book is about the Army of Flanders and its logistics over a period of almost a century 1567 1659 during which the Spanish Empire fought an interminable war against its rebel provinces which would become the Netherlands It is not about the war itself the causes of the conflict or its main events even if the main phases and many of the main events are mentionedDespite this the book is outstanding in several respects First it is rather remarkable in showing how the first modern superpower was able to sustain an eighty year war with a twelve year truce somewhere in the middle on a huge scale although the conflict took place over seven hundred miles from Spain Second it explains why the Spanish Superpower kept up its relentless struggle for so long and at such a huge cost Third it also shows how its huge multinational army composed of Spaniards Italians Germans but also several thousands of English and Irish Catholics and of course thousands of troops raised in Flanders itself from the loyalists subjects of the Spanish Empire was brought to Flanders euipped fed and paid The efforts deployed to this effect were herculean but also often insufficient with the soldiers pay being chronically in arrears and the troops freuently underfedFourth and perhaps than anything else the book seeks to explain why such a huge effort from the State and so many sacrifices and sufferings from its soldiers There were numerous reasons which Geoffrey Parker presents and discusses one after the other Some were political and had to do with the Spanish imperial mind set only total victory was acceptable A number of mistakes were made The Dutch Revolt was supported by Spain s enemies The Dutch devised a complex set of defences that transformed the war into an endless series of difficult and long sieges and sustained their own war effort by developing a commercial overseas Empire of their own The effort implied by keeping such a huge army permanently in the field for decades proved to be too much even for Spain and despite the riches coming from the AmericasFifth the book also includes sections on the day to day life or perhaps accurately in many cases the daily ordeal and suffering of the soldiers of the Army of Flanders Another section analyses how the army reacted and adapted to the often appalling terms of service and treatments that it had to cope with including mutiny and desertionAnother remarkable feature of this book is the author s tone and style There is no bias either way or at least none that I was aware of Also the author s analysis is meticulous and his style is clear with each point being carefully argued and demonstratedFinally this volume is probably also a good companion book for anyone wanting to known about the War in Flanders and for those that have either read the books of Arturo Perez Reverte the Captain Alatriste series or seen the film that have been derived from these books with a rather superb Viggo Mortensen in the role of AlatristeA complete narrative of the War in Flanders is certainly missing but then this was not the book s subject so it can hardly be tasked for this Besides the author has come up with such a narrative in another one of his other books the Dutch Revolt Accordingly I cannot see how I could have rated this book anything less than five stars 2441o Requista suppress the Dutch Revolt at 700 miles' distance Using a uniue combination of Carte de randonnée : Le Massif du Jura, pays du ski de fond, tome 2 : Ain et Jura franco-suisse surviving records he presented 1532e Perignac second revised edition in 2004 and it remains the masterpiece that it was Lens - 3e édition -.

As the back cover of this important book clearly states Its publication in 1972 marked the birth of the new military history which emphasized military organization mobilization pay supply morale and above all logistics rather than military events such as sieges and battlesThe book is not and does not pretend to be a narrative of the Dutch Revolt or a chronological history of The Army of Flanders Battles and sieges are only mentioned in passing and only with the purpose of illustrating other points The book is about military organization not about campaigns or feats of arms The layman will probably find it heavy going but for the serious student of military history it makes fascinating readingThe Army of Flanders was the largest standing army of its time With a peace time footing of just over 10000 men during much of its history its strength was of around 60000 troops and reached 86000 at peak periods It was a multinational force of six Nations Spanish Italians Germans Burgundians Walloons ie natives and English IrishMost of these troops were not foreigners but subjects of the Spanish monarchy which at the time controlled not only the Iberian Peninsula but also areas of Italy Sicily Naples Milan the Franche Comt and of course the Netherlands The Germans were often Catholics with allegiance to the other Habsburg branch the Austrian Emperors The English tended to be Catholic exiles and the Irish claimed that they were vassals of the Kings of Spain by ancient treaties and traditions Other European states such as France also relied heavily on foreign troops but in Spain s case the foreigners were often subjects of other kingdoms of the Spanish empireParker maintains that in the end money was the most significant factor in victory or defeat in the Netherlands and provides an impressive amount of evidence to back up this thesis Spain could only have prevailed in the Netherlands if she had been able to concentrate all her resources there As a global and over extended empire this was never possible Madrid had to fight the Turks in the Mediterranean protect her American colonies and her Italian possessions assist the Habsburgs in the Empire Spain was thus confronted not only with rebellion by the determined Dutch but with wars with the English the French the German Protestants and the Turks She came close to victory several times but time and time again she diverted her resources elsewhere at critical times the Armada the French Wars of Religion the Mantua Succession the Thirty Years War the campaigns against the Turks Parker s study of the Army of Flanders makes fascinating reading Yes conditions for the soldiers were harsh and their pay when it came was always in arrears but life was hard in the period under study and civilians probably fared much worse There were many mutinies which can be properly described as military strikes the men refused to obey until grievances were redressed the most freuent grievance being lack of pay And once pay came they returned to obedience The soldiers made a point of honour to mutiny after battle not before or during action Parker calls the mutinies the earliest or one of the earliest examples of industrial action He demonstrates that the men mutinied to get paid not out of fear of being sent into actionAccording to Parker soldiers were effective and reliable when fighting away from their home country because they could not desert so easily Thus the most respected units of the Army of Flanders were the Spanish and the Italians with the native Walloons being regarded as poor However when Walloon troops were sent to other theatres of operations their performance was excellent This finding is surprising since troops always fight harder to protect their own homes yet Parker s argument about the near impossibility of desertion and a return home as a key motivator makes perfect senseWhat Parker does not emphasize enough however was that Spain s final war objective was unrealistic Madrid not only wanted to bring back the rebellious Dutch to obedience She wanted them to abandon their Protestant faith and return to the Catholic fold A negotiated peace was therefore impossible Madrid s aim meant total victory and to achieve it she would have had to conuer every inch of enemy territory and proceed to a religious version of ethnic cleansing In the end she was never strong enough to overrun the entire Netherlands and extirpate Protestantism but this was not a foregone conclusion During the period under study the Catholic Habsburgs succeeded in doing this in Bohemia and Hungary Louis XIV achieved religious uniformity in France with his expulsion of the Huguenots and Spain disposed of her Muslim and Jewish minoritiesI strongly recommend this book but readers must be aware that they are not acuiring a military narrative Parker has written a book called The Dutch Revolt which gives an excellent and brief account of that struggle This should not be one s first book on the war between Spain and the NetherlandsI would recommend to start by Parker s The Dutch Revolt and then proceed to read The Army of Flanders and the Spanish Road which should be used as a complementFascinating book but not for the layman or the faint hearted
