He was also a brilliant military thinker whose observations arose from extensive battlefield experience.This volume presents a balanced selection from Frederick's writings on strategy, tactics, and mobility the problems of logistics and a two-front war the combined use of infantry, cavalry, and artillery the history of the Prussian army the critical battles of the Seven Years' War generalship as an art and much more.
