George Bruce Malleson (1825-1898) was a British army officer and military historian. On his commission as an ensign in 1842 he was assigned to the 65th Bengal native infantry, and remained in India for the remainder of his military career, serving in the Second Anglo-Burmese War (1852-1853) and witnessing the Indian Mutiny of 1857. After his retirement in 1877, Malleson devoted the rest of his life to publishing scholarly works on military history. This volume, first published in 1888, contains his detailed biography of Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736). Prince Eugene is considered one of the most successful military commanders of the seventeenth century. Malleson describes his life and military campaigns in detail, exploring his strategies against the Ottoman Empire and his campaigns during the War of the Spanish Succession, and providing valuable insights into the methods and strategies of warfare during this period.
