Rossbach and Leuthen 1757: Prussia's Eagle Resurgent (Campaign, Volume 113)

Simon Millar


Osprey's exam of Prussia's feats throughout the Seven Years' warfare (1756-1763). through the fall of 1757 Frederick the good was once beset by means of enemies on either side. The French had invaded the territory of his Anglo-Hanoverian allies, a Franco-Imperial military used to be threatening Saxony, an Austrian military 110,000-strong had marched into Silesia or even the ponderous Russians had moved opposed to him. Then inside of a month Frederick reworked his fortunes. At Rossbach on five November he smashed the Franco-Imperial military in just 11/2 hours. Force-marching to Silesia he gained might be his maximum victory precisely a month later, crushing the Austrian military at Leuthen. The Emperor Napoleon thought of Frederick's lightning crusade 'a masterpiece of manoeuvre and resolution'.
