Nothing But My Sword by Sam Coull

Book Description

Frederick the Great's battlefield triumphs are seen as a tribute to Prussian skill at arms, but many of his victories were won with the aid of a Scottish general. James Keith fled Scotland after the failure of the Jacobite uprising. He initially made a name for himself in the Russian service. Keith eventually entered the Prussian service and was at Frederick the Great's side at the battles of Prague, Rossbach, Leuthen and Olmutz. At Hochkirch Frederick ignored Keith's advice, but was saved from catastrophe when the Scottish general sacrificed himself. Today a statue of General Keith stands in the Scottish town of Peterhead, a gift of the Prussian monarchy.
