Second edition of this important book for the history of the religion wars in France until Henri IV.
Considered to be the best work of the author, this story was a great success until the 19th century.
It starts with a very useful historical bibliography on the topic.
The Catholic League of France founded in 1576 was meant to defend France against Protestants; driven by the Guises, it was one of the greatest dangers the monarchy has ever known.
The spirit of the League gradually faded with the victories of Henri IV, after plotting many religious wars.
