German Peasants' War 1524-26 by Douglas Miller

Book Description

In the 1520s, a war broke out in Germany when insurgent groups rose to overthrow the power structure. The movement took as its emblem a peasant's shoe and the title "Bundschuh", and this became known as the Peasants' War - although the rebel armies actually included as many townsmen, miners, disaffected knights and mercenary soldiers as rural peasants. The risings involved large armies of up to 18,000 men, and there were several major battles before the movement was put down with the utmost ferocity. This work details the weapons, tactics, armies, personalities, costume, and events of this savage war.
