The campaigns of Frederick the Great were a watershed in the history of Europe. They inaugurated a new pattern - of total war for limited objectives - that was to endure until 1916. Frederick's battles were designed to convince his adversaries of the wisdom of making and keeping peace; for him, victory in the field was the means to the more enduring victory of a successful negotiation, and, as such, his wars prefigure those of Napoleon.
