Fontenoy 1745: Cumberlands Bloody Defeat

A disputed succession to the Austrian throne led to general war between the leading powers of Europe in 1740, with France, Spain, and Prussia on one side, and Britain, Habsburg Austria, and the Dutch Republic on the other. While fighting occurred across the globe, the bloodiest battles were fought on the European continent, with none more costly than the battle of Fontenoy in 1745. This title, beautifully illustrated with full color plates, is an in-depth study of the British Duke of Cumberland`s attempt to assault Saxe`s position.
