Osprey Men-at-Arms 248 : Frederick the Great's Army (3) : Specialist Troops

Despite making a number of important innovations, Frederick the Great was not renowned as a great artillery enthusiast, and treated his gunners as second-rate soldiers hardly fit for the society of the 'gentlemen' who officered the other branches of the Prussian army. Nevertheless, he recognised the importance of artillery and greatly expanded the arm. Frederick was also aware of the value of strong fortifications as barriers against the manoeuvres of enemy armies, and as places of security for troops and magazines; some of these were of vital significance in the survival of Prussia during the Seven Years' War. Philip Haythornwaite examines the artillery, engineers and others specialist troops of Frederick the Great's army. The text is complemented by a wealth of illustrations, including eight full page colour plates by Bryan Fosten.
