The reign of Henry VIII saw a renascent militarism encapture England. James Raymond traces the development of Henry's military establishment within the context of the wider European military revolution. Making use of extensive new research into the military literature of the mid-Tudor period, 'Henry VIII's Military Revolution' is able to firmly root the military theories of the time within the solid realities of Henry's army. Raymond pays particular attention to the rise of professionalism and the adaptation of the English army to new technologies and ideas. In this vein Raymond explores the career of Henry's first professional artillaryman for the first time, Sir Christopher Morris. In so doing he casts a striking new light on our understanding of the development of artillery not only in England, but also in Europe as a whole.
