Showalter’s cleverly written book provides a refreshing, multidimensional depiction of Frederick the Great and an objective, detailed reappraisal of his military, political and social achievements.Early chapters set the scene with an excellent summary of 18th century Europe – The Age of Reason; an analysis of the character, composition and operating procedures of the Prussian army; and explore Frederick’s personality as a young man. Later chapters examine his stunning victories at Rossbach and Leuthen, his defeats at Prague and Kolin and Prussia’s emergence as a key European power.Written with style and pace, this book offers brilliant insights into the political and military history of the 18th century, and one of history’s most famous rulers.
