Professor Hervé Drévillon is presenting a public lecture in the series, Les Rendez-vous de l’Histoire : Faire campagne, de l’Antiquité à nos jours, sponsored by the École Militaire in Paris. Drévillon is the latest in a wave of historians to reexamine the prolonged violence of the Thirty Years’ War, a major conflict that devastated much of Germany and embroiled most European states in the mid-seventeenth century.

Historians interested in the European Wars of Religion may want to examine Hervé Drévillon’s books and articles, which treat aspects of seventeenth-century warfare and society. For those specifically intrigued by the Thirty Years’ War should read Peter Wilson’s The Thirty Years’ War: Europe’s Tragedy (2009).
Please convey my regards to Dr. Drévillon and my best wishes for his public lecture. I only wish that I could attend. Having read Peter Wilson’s book I can tell you that it is an incredibly well-researched and useful study of the Thirty Years War, one of the best to see publication. He has also published a companion sourcebook.
