The closest thing to total war before the First World
War, the Seven Years' War was fought in North America,
Europe, the Caribbean and India with major consequences
for all parties involved. This fascinating book is the
first to truly review the grand strategies of the combatants
and examine the differing styles of warfare used in
the many campaigns. These ranged from the large-scale
battles and sieges of the European front to the ambush
and skirmish tactics used in the forests of North America.
Daniel Marston's engaging narrative is supported by
personal diaries and memoirs, and official reports.
