  Dame C. Vernonica Wedgwood OM
Veronica Wedgwood found a peculiar pleasure, she confessed, in "the mere contact of hand with paper", and found "nothing to bridge the passage of the years so much as the unfolding and reading of ancient letters".
Cicely Veronica Wedgwood was born in Northumberland on July 20 1910, the only daughter of Sir Ralph Wedgwood, 1st Bt, who served as the Chief General Manager of the London and North Eastern Railway.
Veronica's mother Iris (née Pawson) was a novelist and travel writer, and considered her daughter to be "a poor plain little thing".

 Amazon.com: Books: The Thirty Years' War   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Wedgwood's book has three great virtues: (1) the clarity and directness of her analysis; (2) her extensive research in a wide variety of incredibly obscure sources in many different languages; and (3) her remarkable gifts as a literary stylist.
Certainly, one of Wedgwood's concerns is why the statesmen of the time were repeatedly unable to bring an end to this horribly destructive war, which took on a life of its own that defeated the original intentions of just about all of the participants (much like the Great War of Wedgwood's youth).
To Wedgwood, the outcome of battles is important insofar as it affected the balance of political forces and thereby made it impossible at a series of critical points to bring the war to an end.

 Holy Roman Empire -- Background
The Thirty Years' War by Dame Cicely Veronica Wedgwood
This is the classic reference, at least in English, and covers the entire chronology of the war.
A pure politico-military history, it is somewhat out of step with more recent ways of doing history (Wedgwood was born 1910) as well as opinionated (basically holding the German princes responsible for not pulling together), but is probably still the single best introduction to the war as well as very enjoyable read.
