The letters and memoranda written to Louis XIV by his minister of war, the marquis de Louvois, help us to understand the working methods of king and minister that enabled war on a European scale to be directed from Paris. The king comes out of these letters as a bureaucrat (as does his minister) having to take in lengthy and detailed reports; an engineer and an architect; and someone with merely a great interest in military affairs, rather than the leader and soldier of official propaganda.
