Frederician Warfare

  • Gerhard Ritter
Part of the World Profiles book series


FREDERICK’S PERSONALITY and his historical significance come to life fully only when we understand his military achievements and the nature of his system of warfare. What was it that distinguished him from the traditional strategists of his day? What enabled him to gain such brilliant victories, and what caused him to suffer such serious—at times ruinous—defeats? Few aspects of his life remain as much in doubt as these.
