Dutch Revolt and 16th Century Netherlands Bibliography

While less known to American audiences compared to the Tudor-Elizabethan period in England or French Wars of Religion, the Dutch Revolt has had a vast body of academic literature surrounding it—since nearly its very inception. When combined with works on the military equipment & tactics of the era and accompanying, burgeoning printing press, there’s a wealth of references to draw from when seeking to understand the people, culture, and events of this tumultuous era.
