The events which occurred within the German speaking part of the Holy Roman Empire between 1524 and 1526 have been described by historians as the most significant popular uprising on European soil of the early modern era. They took place against the backdrop of massive political, economic, technological, and cultural upheaval and a 'Reformation' of religious worship and belief. These developments had a profound effect on the methods of warfare as the mounted fully armored knight with retinue gave way to the use of squadrons of light horse, the deployment of massed ranks of pike and the continuing development of field artillery and the science of ballistics. This book, which is a companion volume to the Army of the Swabian League in this series, provides a detailed and illustrated account of the organisation and operation of the peasant armies of the day. It presents a description and analysis of the rebels' tactics and weaponry used against the Landsknecht armies of the German nobility in each of the theaters of this war and it seeks to provide a more holistic explanation for the ultimate collapse of this 'revolution of the common man.' AUTHOR: Douglas Miller is a retired academic. He has been researching and modelling renaissance warfare in Germany for over 40 years. He is an honorary member of the Association of German Peasants' War Museums and has authored several books on the military organisation and costume of Landsknechts and peasants during this period. 8 colour plates, 25 b/w images, 45 colour images, 16 maps, 4 diagrams
