Kolin 1757 by Simon Millar
Book DescriptionIn May 1757 Frederick the Great invaded Bohemia, smashed an Austrian army outside Prague and bottled it up inside the besieged city. The Empress Maria Theresa could not sit by and allow the second city of the Empire to be captured and Marshal Daun was despatched with 60,000 fresh troops to its relief. This volume details the actions that ensued when, characteristically aggressive, Frederick gathered all available men and marched to meet Daun whose infantry alone almost outnumbered Frederick. Undaunted, Frederick decided to try to turn the Austrian right flank. Marshal Daun saw through Frederick's manoeuvre and when the Prussian infantry attacked on 18th of June the Austrians were waiting.

Assaye 1803, Paperback (May 2006)
Wellington said that of all, the battle of Assaye from the Second Mahratta War (1803-05) in central India, was the bloodiest for the numbers that I ever saw. This book examines the bitter 3-hour battle, which was won by Wellesley's coolness and leadership.
Zorndorf 1758, Paperback (June 2003)
Zorndorf was the first battle in which Frederick the Great faced the Russians. He had not taken the Russian threat seriously, but despite all of his tactical skill he could not achieve a breakthrough and the battle degenerated into a slugging match.
