Format: Paperback
This book is a history of Frederick's many Wars. If you are looking for a biography of Frederick, this book is not for you. If you are looking for detailed orders of battle or blow by blow descriptions of key battles, look somewhere else. If you are interested in foreign policy or intellectual history, this book is not for you.
However, if you want a well written overview of Fredericks' many struggles, this book is perfect. Dennis Showalter is America's foremost expert on German military history. I found this book to be a great introduction to Frederick the Great and the Prussian Army he created. Showalter is a great writer who has the confidence to inject a little humor into his work.
If you are new to Warfare in the Age of Reason, this book is a first rate introduction. If you like the history and you want to read more, move onto the more complex works of the equally talented Christopher Duffy.

Dr Showalter has written a gem of a book, examining the armies and warfare of the period, and the ways that social, economic and philosophical factors impacted them. This book is full of details, well-documented, and yet reads almost conversationally. This book belongs on the shelf of any 18-19th century military enthusiast. Highly recommended!

This is an excellent book on the Wars of Frederick the Great. It is good to understand what was faced by this leader. Not all Germany history is Mr. Hitler.
