Praise

“This 48-page paperback succinctly traces the history of the tercio from its antecedents in early 16th-century campaigns in Italy to its decline and ultimate realignment into a regimental system in 1704. Readers will learn how Emperor Charles V formed the first tercios; their recruitment, training, organization and logistics; and the soldiers’ duties and ranks. Full-color illustrations are combined with black and white photographs of artifacts from the Spanish Army Museum to show the foot soldiers’ armor, weapons, clothing and flags while illuminating their tactics.”
