Synopsis: Presents an overview of the major wars of the eighteenth century, an era dominated by conflicts between Europe's leading powers both on the European continent and overseas in the newly established colonies.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up-Don't expect these titles to fly off your shelves. They are well illustrated (often in full color), include decent maps and diagrams, contain informative sidebars and fairly specific indexes, and are filled with details about battles, soldiers, and weapons. Chapters begin with summary paragraphs. However, all of this makes for a textbook-like approach that comes off as dry. Sommerville looks at warfare in the late-18th through mid-19th centuries, focusing primarily on the Americans and the French and their wars of independence and subsequent battles with other enemies (such as Mexico and Prussia, respectively). Westwell covers European conflicts from the Great Northern War in 1700 to the death of Catherine the Great in 1796, and includes wars fought with Native Americans and over the fate of India. Unfortunately, neither book offers a chronology/timeline to put these events in perspective. The British influence of both authors is apparent in style and content, giving a definite Western bias to the information. The authors' knowledge is comprehensive, but Westwell's point of view and devotion to the subject of warfare is blatant when he states during his description of the War of the Spanish Succession that "Peace negotiations overshadowed the war during 1712." Names such as Flanders and Bohemia are sometimes thrown in without an introduction or much explanation. All things considered, the facts are correct and these titles may fill a void in libraries where textbooks are not part of the collection or supplementary sources are needed.-Andrew Medlar, Chicago Public Library, IL
