LOS PAISES BAJOS 1567-1573: Las Campanas del Duque de Alaba

LOS PAISES BAJOS 1567-1573: Las Campanas del Duque de Alaba
by Abad, Ruben

1-666129

The Low Countries 1567-1573 and the Campaigns of the Duke of Lauda

As a general he demonstrated his prowess by defeating the Protestant rebels in Jemmingen and in Jodoigne, recovering Mons, looting Mechelen or taking Haarlem.

And to make matters worse, he stole the financial resources with which to carry out his work, having to resort to the imposition of taxes Manu Militarii.
