Synopsis

In May 1757 Frederick the Great invaded Bohemia, smashed an Austrian army outside Prague and bottled it up inside the besieged city. The Empress Maria Theresa could not sit by and allow the second city of the Empire to be captured and Marshal Daun was despatched with 60,000 fresh troops to its relief. This volume details the actions that ensued when, characteristically aggressive, Frederick gathered all available men and marched to meet Daun whose infantry alone almost outnumbered Frederick. Undaunted, Frederick decided to try to turn the Austrian right flank. Marshal Daun saw through Frederick's manoeuvre and when the Prussian infantry attacked on 18th of June the Austrians were waiting.

Simon Millar went to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 1977, was commissioned into the 17th/21st Lancers and in 1984 transferred to the Irish Guards. He retired as a Major in 1994.

He has worked with a variety of educational publishers covering various subjects within the fields of history and natural history. For Osprey he has illustrated numerous Campaign and Warrior titles.
