Europe, 1618: The Bohemian Revolt are just about to begin. Eventually they would hurl all central Europe into one of its worst tragedies, the Thirty Years War. In this video we tell the story of the outbreak of this “extremely complex conflict” as the Historian Peter Wilson refers to the Thirty Years War. In German and Czech history, the Thirty Years War occupies a place similar to that of the civil wars in the United States of America or Britain, or the revolutions in France and Russia: a defining moment of national trauma that shaped how a country sees itself and its place in the world. Religious belief and political power, social tensions, and constitutional errors, warmongering and appeasement – all played their part in bringing about one of the most tragic and devasting conflicts fought on German territory.
