The Seven Years War pitted Britain, allied with the emerging power of Prussia, against a coalition led by France, and including Austria, Sweden and Saxony. Best known in Britain for the wresting away of chunks of the French empire – including Canada – in Europe, the war was most notable for the battles fought, won and sometimes lost by King Frederick the Great of Prussia against Austria and Saxony. This book, written by a British Major-General who served in the Austrian army, covers the battles of Zornsdorf, Hochkirchen, Patzig, Cunnersdorf and Maxen – and is one of the best contemporary accounts of 18th century warfare and the tactics of Frederick. Contains many maps.
Major-General Lloyd, who served in Several Campaigns in the Austrian Army
