dc.description.abstractThe study of the wars of Frederick the Great by Dennis E. Showalter is both fascinating and informative. King Frederick II ruled Prussia from 1740 to 1786. During his reign Prussia was involved in a number of wars (notably the Seven Years War). The reign of Frederick is acknowledged as the era in which Prussia was establish as a first ranking power in Europe. Yet, the Wars of Frederick the Great is more than just a campaign history of Frederick's wars. In this study the author places Frederick's wars, Frederick's reign in Prussia and the art of war and statecraft within the context of the time, which makes this work an important contribution to the study of Military History and power politics in the eighteenth century.en_ZA
