This is the last in a three-volume set of books on the armies of Prussia's greatest warrior king - Frederick the Great. This book looks at the equipment of Prussia's specialist troops including artillery, engineers and light troops. Frederick the Great was as influential on the warfare of his age as Napoleon would later be on his, and under his leadership Prussia faced most of the European powers and ultimately emerged triumphant.
