Abstract

In this book, author Victor Belhomme uses the historical archives from the French minister of war to illuminate the practicalities of every-day life in the French military under Louis XIV. Instead of dwelling exclusively on the battles fought or the rules of conduct, Belhomme focuses on the organization of the troops, their life in garrisons, and the unique formations of the military under the 17th century king that disappeared during the years of peace under Louis XIV, but then reappeared with the onset of the Revolution.
