Reissue in a separate print, annotated and repaginated of Napoleon's comments on the Seven Years' War dictated on St. Helena, the last publication of which dates from the Second Empire. After a short historical introduction, this Précis of the Wars of Frederick II takes up the comments that Napoleon dictated during his exile on the island of St. Helena. He tackled each of the campaigns from 1756 to 1762, accompanied by thirty tactical and strategic observations. The book concludes with Napoleon's more general considerations of the Seven Years' War. Established by the Emperor in the light of his own political and military experience, this analysis is of great interest since these comments are among the few writings, under his dictation, of his own military conceptions. In this respect, the Précis is a masterpiece of Napoleonic strategy.
