A coalition of nations, including Austria, Sweden and Russia, seek the destruction of Prussia. Greatly outnumbered, Frederick the Great, leader of the diminutive country, prepares to defend Prussia's existence. A young Scottish officer, named Fergus Drummond, stands ready to help Frederick defy the odds. During the struggle, he will face adversity on, and off, the battlefield. Will Fergus survive the conflict? How will Frederick respond to overwhelming odds? Will Prussia survive or be crushed by her enemies? These questions, and more, are answered in With Frederick the Great: A Story of the Seven Years' War by G.A. Henty. Set in mid-eighteenth century Prussia and Scotland, this book includes more than eighty geographical, historical, and explanatory footnotes to aid the modern reader.
