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. 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.
