@Rajib the following is an excerpt: They first appeared in Germany in the sixteenth century. The riders developed a special tactic known as caracole, which allowed them to effectively bombard infantry units with constant weapons fire.

+1 great answer. I'm a senior in high school and I'm really starting to get interested in history. What do you recommend to read instead of textbooks? I know that there are many books on specific topics but I think it might be a good idea to get a general feel for history from the textbooks before I read about more detailed topics.

@SamuelRussell I looked in the index and didn't find too much information about what exactly they meant by the social classes. I added a couple excepts from the book that might be helpful.
