A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The classic study of one of history's most famous armies has been heavily revised and updated. Over twenty more years of research and study helps tell us, not only why this army rose to fame at Rossbach and Leuthen, but what happened to it. A great army is made flesh and blood. We can see the rise of the cavalry from ridiculous to the superb; the light forces change from negligible to the terror of their enemies.
