Abstract: The idea that a military revolution occurred in the early modern period, specifically in the 16th century was established by Michael Roberts based on a published lecture in 1955. The essentials of his thesis are a mutually sustained relationship between the professionalism required for tactical changes and the rise of larger and more permanent state military forces. Roberts stated that changes in tactics, strategy, the scale of warfare and its impact upon society was apparent towards the end of the 16th century.
