  The Thirty Years War.
Historians have tried time and again to identify the central issues of the conflict which devastated Europe between 1618 and 1648. The Thirty Years War puts the religious and constitutional struggle in the Holy Roman Empire squarely back into the centre of events, coupled with the problems of war finance - these are shown to be an important key to the interaction between inter-state and domestic conflicts during the war.
