Early Modern historian Geoffrey Parker studies the military organization of the Spanish Army of Flanders, its logistics, and the importance and limitations of the Spanish Road. It’s notorious how Parker addresses complex issues such as why the Spanish monarchy dedicated so many resources to suppress the Dutch Revolt, and that he includes day-to-day life experiences of the soldiers and mutinies. The Army of Flanders and the Spanish Road, 1567-1659 is an academic book, but it can also interest you if you are into Arturo Pérez Reverte’s Alatriste series.
