Rossbach and Leuthen 1757 by Simon Millar
Book DescriptionBy July 1757, in the aftermath of defeat at Kolin, the situation looked bleak for Frederick the Great of Prussia. French troops had invaded allied territory, whilst other French and Austrian armies were moving towards Hanover. Marching west, Frederick's men faced French and Austrian troops at Rossbach on 5 November. In less than two hours it was over. The Allies had lost 10150 men and the rest fled. This title examines how on 6 December, Frederick won what was perhaps his greatest victory at Leuthen. More than 12000 Austrians were captured, and 6750 killed. Five days later, Breslau surrendered. Napoleon referred to this campaign as a "masterpiece of manoeuvre and resolution".

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.
