Description

8vo. 7 pp.   Wrappers.  

As part of Frederick the Great's campaign to annex Silesia he marched his forces into Moravia.   The Prussians were at first defeated at the battle of Chotusitz, south of the Elbe, on 17 May 1742, by the Austrian army commanded by Prince Charles of Lorraine, but Frederick later counter-attacked and won the day.   The Peace of Breslau of 11 June 1742 ended Frederick's first military campaign and established him as the rightful owner of the whole of Silesia.
