The Grand Strategy of Philip II Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This fascinating book is the first to analyze how Philip II of Spain ruled the first global empire in history, from 1556 to his death in 1598. Geoffrey Parker investigates the strengths and weaknesses of Philip's strategic vision, the priorities that underlay his policies, the practices and prejudices that influenced his decision making, and the external factors that affected the achievement of his goals.

Synopsis:

An investigation of Philip II of Spain's policies and strategic vision which enabled him to gain and maintain control of the first global empire in history. The flaws in the Grand Strategy are also explored, and Philip's actions compared to those of more modern strategists such as Hitler and Churchill.
