Rate this:
Few military leaders have been as successful or as flamboyant as Maurice Marshal de Saxe, who reigned supreme in the tangled wars that raged across Europe during the early-Eighteenth Century. In this pithy biography, Edmund D'Auvergne traces the ascent of the future marshal from his lowly roots as an illegitimate son of Augustus II of Poland. He fought in many uniforms, serving the Army of the Holy Roma Empire, Imperial Army and most famously at the head of the French Army. Winning many battles in his career, he is best remembered for winning the decisive battle of Fontenoy which established French supremacy in the War of Austrian Succession.
