Thorough and interesting,
By A Customer
This review is from: Essential Histories: The Seven Years' War (Paperback)
Speaking as a non-historian (and therefore one of the book's intended audience), I found this book to be an excellent general history of a conflict that I previously knew little about. The author did a good job of presenting the various participants and theatres clearly and concisely, as well as succinctly outlining the (potentially confusing) political context in which the war took place. The illustrations and maps provided interest and important supporting information. I thought that this was more than up to Osprey's usual standard of quality, and overall a thorough and interesting exploration of 18th-century history and warfare.
