    1 thought on “The Seven Years' War”

    1. Succinct overview of the concurrent conflict in Europe, India and North America that provides a solid jumping of point for further studies

    2. It does what it set out to do: a well-written, concise review of one of the most disjointed conflicts of the modern era, a perfect gateway to more specific books, and certainly a great companion to have.

    3. A long and very complicated war, The Seven Years' War is sometimes considered the first 'World War' in that it involved most of Europe's major powers and encompassed a large portion of the civilized world. From the Caribbean to Canada, Germany to India, and the high seas, This war was fought on all fronts by Britain, Prussia, France, Austria, Russia, and Spain. Most Americans are more familiar with this war as the French and Indian War, which really just includes one of the many theaters of oper [...]

    4. What it is intended for, it does very well. In a space of little more than 90 pages, it provides a very compact, generic introduction to the history of Seven Years War. It starts of by setting it in contemporary context, introduces major participating nations and then, off we go - a rapid chronological walkthrough through the major events of the war in three different continents.For anyone familiar with the story of Seven Years War, there isn't much to be found here, with the possible exception [...]

    5. Concise and interesting 100 page overview of what Americans call "the French-Indian wars" from 1754-1760 inspired by a recent trip to Quebec City and Montreal, Canada where many of the battles between the British and French took place. Winston Churchill called it the "first world war", and it was as action took place globally in Europe and India as well. The major powers of the time (Britain, France, Prussia, Russia, Austro-Hungary empire) all struggled for power and to expand their colonial amb [...]

    6. This is a good book for persons like myself who are curious about this war between Great Britain and France that was fought in Europe, North America, and Asia prior to the American Revolution. Describes the origins of the war, other states involved (Prussia, Austria, Hanover, Russia), type of land and sea tactics used, the main battles, impact of fighting on civilian populations, and what each country gained or lost from the war. Many illustrations including portraits, maps, battlescapes.

    7. A typical essential histories book by Osprey. I found it informative, given my knowledge of the 7 Years War centered on Ticonderoga and Quebec. It was interesting to learn about the campaigns in India, but of course the coverage left me wanting more. The book fails in terms of maps and illustrations. There are maps, and nice reproductions of paintings of the time, but for the most part they are pages away from the relevant text. Poor editing, but good writing overall.

    8. Perhaps the first true world war with battles in Europe, India and the Americas. The aftermath of this war left all nations in significant debt and definitely led to the American Revolution and other reductions in the width and bredth of European Empire.By it's nature 7 years is difficult to cover but it is once again done in a superb fashion by the Osprey Essential Histories team.

    9. A fairly good summary of what was, in effect, the first world war, with very different conflicts going on. With Britain and France engaging in colonial battles throughout the world and Prussia and Austria squaring off (with French participation) in Europe, there's a lot to cover. The book does a pretty good job of summarizing and keeping track of the far-flung events spanning a number of years.
