This article is based upon a study of more than seventy eyewitness personal accounts, which are a valuable source of information about the nature of the Thirty Years War as perceived by participants and the affected population. Many of the writers were unpractised at any form of literary activity, and for most their account of the war would probably have been their most complex and extensive piece of free composition. All writing is influenced by models, general forms with which the writer is familiar or specific examples which he or she has read, and this study examines the available models in mid-seventeenth century Germany, and traces their influences in these eyewitness accounts.
