    1. Geoffrey Parker es uno de los mayores estudiosos del periodo de los tercios espa oles.Libro muy interesante para dejar de lado la pica y entender los problemas pol ticos, econ micos y log sticos de un ej rcito en campa a Y porque Espa a acabo agotando sus recursos y perdiendo por lo tanto la guerra.


    2. Interesante tratado hist rico sobre la guerra de los 80 a os Aunque a ratos se hace un tanto dif cil de leer, sobre todo por la gran cantidad de datos hist ricos que maneja, el libro da una visi n general y muy contextualizada de lo que supuso para el imperio espa ol de la poca lidiar con una guerra de desgaste tan lejos de sus fronteras Una guerra que fue el punto d bil por el que todos sus enemigos atacaron para debilitarlo, y que le hizo consumir gran cantidad de recursos militares y financie [...]


    3. It is an amazing book up until the first half, then the author starts to delve too much on the economics of the army, and goes in great detail about the salary of each soldier, their expense, the total price that cost the Spanish crown the Army of the Flanders and that s plain boring The mutiny chapter started very promising until he started to delve about moneyz again The book should have been called Economics of the Army of the Flanders But other than that, it is a very good book would have be [...]


    4. This is a fine fine book For a book about military logistics you could be forgiven for thinking that it would be dull as dishwater But alas this is massively interesting and dare I say entertaining.


    5. Parker manages to make logistical history fascinating The complexity of politics and military action in the early modern age is both clearly described and impressively researched.


    6. A very good and complete book Very interesting to understand how were the armies f the XVI century and which were the problems of the Spanish Haubsbourgs in Flandes.
