About the Author

Peter H. Wilson is the author of the highly acclaimed Europe's Tragedy- A New History of the Thirty Years War (2009). He is the Chichele Professor of the History of War at the University of Oxford.


Masterly...Peter H Wilson condenses a great deal of modern scholarship while wearing his learning lightly.
*The Sunday Times*

Wilson's history represents the culmination of a lifetime of research and thought, and in its scope and depth of detail is an astonishing scholarly achievement. The author moves from the grand themes to detail with felicity.
*The Spectator*

As vast and capacious as the empire it describes, his book is as definitive a study of its subject as one could hope to read...The Holy Roman Empire deserves to be hailed as a magnum opus.
*The Telegraph*

Wilson makes the complex understandable.
*The Guardian*

Peter Wilson is to be congratulated on writing the only English-language work that deals with the empire from start to finish and on the basis of staggering erudition. He will not thank anyone for saying so, but it is also a book that is relevant to our own times.
