About the Author:

Robert Asprey is a military historian whose articles and books are internationally respected. Born in 1923 he served as an officer in the Marines in World War II and in the Korean War. A Fulbright scholar, he studied at both Oxford University and the University of Vienna. His works include the best-selling War in the Shadows—The Guerrilla in History.

From Library Journal:

This welcome reprise of the great Prussian soldier-king provides some new insights into the tantalizing contradictions in his personality and behavior and retells the crowded events of his life in a comprehensive manner. Asprey's fresh prose and anecdotal style are appealing to the modern reader and detailed enough to satisfy the specialist. He is skilled at depicting the people who surrounded Frederick and in explaining the tortuous political and military affairs of the era. The book makes a nice companion to Christopher Duffy's Military Life of Frederick the Great ( LJ 1/86). Recommended for public and school libraries. Raymond L.
