At first glance this is quite a heavy going, theoretical book. Its actually pretty practical and quite simple in its deductions. Highly recommended for anyone interested in command, leadership and management.
A really good general account of the 7 years war. Its quite a task getting the span of the war into one volume and the author does a great job. A balance between detail of the naval and military actions and the wider political decision-making. The balance between the different theatres of war is also well done.
If you are after an in-depth history of a certain area then this may not be the book for you but I highly recommend it.
