Description
"With Frederick the Great: A Story of the Seven Years' War", by G.A. Henty with twelve illustrations by Wal Paget, published by Charles Scribner's Sons. First American Edition with "1897" imprinted on the bottom of the title page and copyright.

Among the great wars of history there are few, if any, instances of so long and successfully sustained a struggle, against enormous odds, as that of the Seven Years' War, maintained by Prussia - then a small and comparatively insignificant kingdom- against powerful established empires- Russia, Austria, and France simultaneously, who were aided also by the forces of most of the minor principalities of Germany.

George Alfred Henty (1832-1902) was a prolific English novelist and war correspondent. He is best known for his historical adventure stories that were popular in the late 19th century.

Walter Stanley Paget (1862-1935) was a British illustrator of the late 19th and early 20th century, who signed his work as "Wal Paget". Paget held a gold medal from the Royal Academy of Arts, and was the youngest of three brothers, Henry M. Paget (eldest) and Sidney Paget (middle brother), all illustrators.
