    A clear description of one of the less well understood periods of the 7 Years WarThere is a sense of after the Lord Mayor's show to the campaigns of 1758 The previous year had been a remarkable ride Frederick the Great had suffered his first defeat at Kolin before crushing both the main French and Austrian armies in a truly remarkable winter campaign Elsewhere the war in North America had seen the fall of Fort Wiliam Henry and a bloody massacre whilst in India Robert Clive had won a remarkable victory at Plassey to make Britain the most powerful force in that part of the world All of these have been recorded by Osprey's Campaign series1758 however is a far less well understood beast and that is what Simon Millar tries to defeat with this volume Holy Mother Russia intervened against Prussia and they proved a foe that even Frederick would struggle to defeat Millar lists the campaign throughout the year with Zorndorf being it's bloody centrepieceThis is a difficult battle to describe because as the author admits it is far from clear what was going on both for the generals on the ground and modern historians attempting to make sense of it all Given that Millar does a good job His writing is clear and you know who is supposed to be where He follows the standard Campaigns series format and this is a good work for students of the period One minor critiicism is that he expects you to know how both armies fought from other works but that does not affect one's ability to understand it too greatly

    Another great issue in the Osprey series

    The writing is less tight than expected and their are some holes in the book such as little discussion of the Prussian army at the time of the battle
