The Thirty Years' War can be quite a confusing and complex war for students to tackle. Instead of overwhelming them with a lot of information, I intentionally made this a one page reading document. Whether you assign this as homework or do it together as a class, this is an excellent supplement to use while you teach the Thirty Years' War.
