Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book The Road to Rocroi contains the table of contents, acknowledgements, list of illustrations, charts and maps, and a list of abbreviations. This book aims to study the decline of the officer corps and high command of the Army of Flanders, the first and largest standing army of its day, from its status in the late sixteenth century as Europes military elite to the demoralized and increasingly incompetent group they became in the last two decades of the Eighty Years War. It explores the social and intellectual dimensions of this process of military deterioration, studies the role played by significant historical figures in this development and sketches a tactical picture of the everyday functioning of the Army of Flanders.

Keywords: Army of Flanders; Eighty Years War; military deterioration
