Welcome to the Early Modern Warfare Website
When I have more chapters of my dissertation complete, I'll fix up these pages, but for right now, you can:
Read my manifesto on EMWWeb, a rambling list of suggestions for what this website could become.
Look at the first data to be posted here: a list of Austrian
generals (1680's-1740's), courtesy of Erik Lund.
This page is rather large (271 Imperial generals with their ranks and dates, about 311 k), so you may want to download the tab-delimited text version or the Excel 97 version if you already know you want the data.
Browse images from Pelet's atlas accompanying Vault
and J. Pelet, ed. Mémoires militaires relatifs à la succession d'Espagne
sous Louis XIV, extraits de la correspondance de la cour et des généraux
par le lieutenant général de Vault, directeur du Dépot de la Guerre, mort
en 1790... (Paris: Imprimerie royale, 1862).
