War and Competition between States

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the types of armies in early modern Spain. It suggests that one of the most decisive agents in the formation of the Spanish army was the War of Granada between 1482 and 1492 and this war marked the turning point between medieval and modern warfare. Most of the combatants participated in the war effort as a result of mutual service obligations. These include the nobles, the hidalgos, and the acostamiento.
