Simplizissimus is a German language novel set in the 30 Years War. Written at the time - well 1660s. Here is part 1 of a film version. Its in German but its still worth watching I think. Teil 2

Great, I didn't know there was a film. I would thoroughly recommend the new translation by Mike Mitchell, along with the sequels in the Simplicius trilogy 'Courage' and 'Tearaway'. Full of fascinating detail of the TYW, as well as being horrific and hilarious at the same time.
