The three last chapters are devoted to the topic of the absence of any sense of community. According to Charles Tilly and other historians who have followed him, wars can help to build the state. When people fight against a common enemy, they develop a sense of belonging to the same community. This chapter shows that although the dukes of Burgundy were engaged in constant warfare and created perfectly organised armies, their subjects did not share this sense of a common enemy.
