THE SEVEN YEARS WAR – A NEW HISTORY: VOLUME 1 POWER AND POLITICS (1755-1757)
300pp., fully illus. incl.51 maps, 38 orders of battle. 2016.
This first volume covers comprehensively the world-wide events to the Battle of Rossbach. But there is one major purpose to this new history. The effects of time and World Wars have been to make following the course of action impossible with the volume of name changes across Europe. For the first time, Digby cuts through the confusions to provide an effective gazetteer of place names to make the understanding of campaigns possible.
