Experience the dread and the triumph of a 16th-century siege. It's 1585 and the Netherlands is in revolt against the Spanish Empire. One Dutch town is all that stands between the Spanish army and its invasion of Holland. Prepare to experience a city under siege...A composite of several historic battles, this book takes readers inside the walls of a besieged community and also behind the battle lines with the attackers. Readers will march with the advancing army and learn the logistics of keeping it fed. They will join the townspeople in preparing the defence, even demolishing some of their own buildings to deter the enemy. And they will witness the need for patience as much as power, since victory often depended on outlasting the enemy against disease and starvation. The story is brought to life through dramatic storytelling and vivid illustrations, and factually grounded with detailed diagrams, this book is a realistic look at Renaissance life during military strife.
