Hippocrene Books | 1974 | DJVU

This is a study of the greatest army of its time, the army of Frederick the Great, by the finest historian of the wars of the 18th Century. The Prussian military machine is analysed in detail, from top to bottom, from the mentality of the Junkers who led it to the way the men were clothed. The tactics, the recruitment, and the finances of the military are laid bare. A great army is made flesh and blood.
