30YearsWar #82: A Return To Prague [1648]

The final episode of our series involves no shortage of intrigue, scheming and mistrust, yet it is also the moment when diplomacy arguably succeeded. After three decades of war, Europe, and the Holy Roman Empire in particular, had come to terms with the cost of conflict. Perhaps, in the future, things would be different? Perhaps, but as a brief look at our back catalogue shows, the post-Westphalian world was by no means free from the curse of war.

Thanksss so much for following this series over the last four years - or is that thirty years? Can hardly believe we made it, but be sure to look out for the conclusion episode, where we will wrap these things up in a satisfying bundle!
