Overview

The first book to cover the commanders, uniforms, weapons, tactics, and battles of all the armies involved in the conflict 

Drawn from many international sources, many not seen before in English-language publications, this is the definitive reference work for students, readers, and enthusiasts of the Seven Years War period. It details the senior commanders, uniforms, weapons, equipment, artillery, strategy, tactics, and combat involvement (military and naval) of the forces that fought for survival and world supremacy from 1756 to 1763. States covered include Austria, Bavaria, Britain, Brunswick, Denmark, Hanover, Hessen-Darmstadt, Hessen-Kassel, Holland, France, the Palatinate, Portugal, Prussia, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Württemberg, and the minor contingents of the Holy Roman Empire. The colonial struggle in North America is included. Coverage of the intricacies of the uniforms, colors, and standards is in unprecedented depth, many details of which were previously unpublished. The tactics of the "horse and musket" era are examined, as are Frederick the Great's abilities as a war leader who led his armies against the rest of Europe.
