>sigi, which book did you read on the Thirty Year War?

It's an old book, written in the early period of the Nazis.

"The Thirty Years War" by C V Wedgewood.

I realised when I was in Peru that the Habsburg armies were financed by the gold and silver from there. Even though the Spanish took their Christianity very seriously and had the idea that the Indians should be free under the crown in this medieval type system, the demands from Europe meant a couple of hundred years of slavery for them.

On which subject, if you can get hold of anything by him, you might like to read Aguedas. I enjoyed "Rios Profundos" immensely. I read it in English of course.
