    Description

    Horse & Matchlock is the prologue to Horse & Musket: Dawn of an Era. This volume will cover warfare from 1618-1682, when the armies of Europe shifted from heavy pike formations to linear lines of musketeers. It was a transitional phase, with warfare moving towards firepower, although firepower was curbed by the limitations of the matchlock musket. In addition, bayonets were rare and the pike was the infantry's best defense against cavalry. It was also the last era were religion was a major factor in the causes and ferocity of warfare. The volume includes battles from the Thirty Years War, Franco-Spanish War, English Civil Wars, The Fronde, Franco-Dutch War, and Scanian War.
