About the Book

The THIRTY YEAR'S WAR is a troublesome story that takes place in the years 1618-1648 A.D. During this time there was a horrible religious conflict between the Protestants and the Catholics. This feud caused unbelievable suffering and death for almost 10 million people! Many vicious battles and sieges destroyed the population and cities in the middle of Europe. Famine and sicknesses added to the suffering of women, men, and children. It did not matter if you were a famous military leader or a noble, no one was safe and just going to church at the wrong place, and the wrong time could get you killed! Journey with young Hector Campbell during his career and observe his perilous way during this difficult era. Cardinal Richelieu and Cardinal Mazarin poured gas into this explosive situation and almost lost their lives! Conspiracies were discovered almost every week; people were arrested, tortured and publicly killed with their extorted confession. The catholic France sided with the Protestants because they feared that strong Austria might soon rule most of Europe. France later persecuted the Protestants (Huguenots) by killing them or chasing them away. The whole controversy developed into a very unclear tragedy as different European rulers thirst for power grew. Neither side involved in this feud was willing to give in, causing it to last nearly 30 years! Peace was finally signed in 1648 at Münster, Germany, and much property and land was newly distributed between the parties. Though it was unfair, the poor and the farmers got no reimbursement at all for their terrible losses! At the end there was no winner or loser - we all lost! If you enjoy historical stories then you will want to read this book! This story was written and published so that this essential part of our History will never be forgotten. Let this book take you back in time to a very interesting tale of life or death.
