Synopsis

The military genius of Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736) has long been recognized: Napoleon counted him among the seven great generals of history. His subsequent political career, however, is less well known, even though he was chief minister of the Austrian ruler and German emperor, Charles VI. This work is the first scholarly study of Eugene to appear in English: it is based on a re-examination of Austrian primary sources and research into the English diplomatic records, and it takes full account of modern German scholarship.
