WILLIAM III'S ITALIAN ALLY: Piedmont and the War of the League of Augsburg 1683-1697
The Nine Year often assumed that the conflict was fought solely in Flanders and the Rhineland, and by mainly North West European Armies. This was not so. William of Orange, the driving force of the Grand Alliance in the fight against the French, considered the Italian aspect of the conflict to be of the greatest strategic importance.
Piedmont, in north western Italy bordered France, and Italian armies were able to threaten the south of France with invasion. For the first time too, the nature of late 17th century warfare in Italy is considered and the author examines organization, training and logistics. Military artist Bruno Mugnai enhances the book's text with 8 specially commissioned color plates that illustrate the uniforms and flags of this highly visual period. Includes 25 black and white illustrations and maps and 8 color plates.
