Originally published in 1784, this work is the only detailed work in English and one of the few works in any language on this particular war. It covers the reasons for the war and every movement, counter move, skirmish, raid, and other engagement. It is an odd war, as there were no major battles, but consisted of marches by the main armies as the Prussians attempted to maneuver the Austrian main army out of is position, while the light troops and cavalry raiding forces created havoc.
