The Seven Years War has been described as the first global conflict in history. It engulfed the Euro-Atlantic world from 1756 to 1763, and engaged the energies of European cabinets as never before. More than previous conflicts, the Seven Years War involved a variety of approaches to war, and taxed the military, material and moral resources of the powers involved. Drawing on a diverse array of archival, printed primary and secondary sources, The Seven Years War: A Transatlantic Historycovers the war’s origins, its conduct on land and at sea, its effects on logistics and finance, its interactions with domestic politics, its influence on international relations and its approach to peace. The book highlights the role of personality, alongside the enduring importance of communication, misperception and understanding. In so doing, it endeavours not merely to chronicle the war’s events, but to situate them in the context of mid-eighteenth century warfare, finance, politics and diplomacy. The Seven Years Warwill be of great interest to students of the European history, American history, maritime history, diplomatic and military history.

Extraordinary Justice

"Extraordinary Justice seeks to fill an important gap in our understanding of what military tribunals are, how they function, and their relative successfulness in rendering justice in the extreme conditions occasioned by war, by placing them in comparative and historical context. Peter Judson Richards examines the tribunals as a national response to the incidents of war in four conflicts: the American Civil War, the British experience in the Boer War, the French practices of the First World War, and the allied measures of the Second World War." "Richards also considers the larger political, legal, and military context, addressing the scholarly and policy debates that invariably arise with the implementation of these extraordinary measures. While acknowledging the mixed record of the national tribunals, he concludes that enduring elements in the character of warfare, of justice, and the nature of political reality together justify their continued use."--BOOK JACKET.
The Colditz Myth

The story of Colditz has been told often but this book chronicles the development of the Colditz myth and puts what happened inside the castle in the context of British and Commonwealth POW life in Germany as a whole. Being a captive of the Third Reich was more complicated and tougher than the popular myth would suggest. Both physical and mental demands of survival far outweighed escaping activity in order of importance in most camps. For the first time McKenzie seeks, for the first time, to place Colditz - both the camp and the legend - in a wider historical context.
