    Gigapie beat me to it, but I still have to say they were too. In fact, no other war in history has like the Thirty Years War.

    Germany itself, large portions of it were literally denuded of people, thousands had died from war, pestilence and famine. The Black Plague had reared it's ugly head several times over the course of the war, it killed 16,000 in Prague in the 1630's alone. Bohemia became a Catholic Kingdom, permanently, after being Protestant for 150years, The Palatinate was subject to the Wittlesbach monarchy in Bavaria. Beyond that everything else went back to the way it was. Spain was destroyed as a major power, broke from the constant wars. The Netherlands became independent permanently. Brandenburg-Prussia began it's long climb to the domination of the German kingdoms shortly after the war and probably because of it. France was the big benefactor of the war, a united country with Spain broke and the Hapsburgs contained.
