Il trattato di Aquisgrana del 1748, che concluse la Guerra di Successione austriaca rafforzando l’emergente Stato prussiano, con l’acquisizione della Slesia sottratta agli Asburgo, pose alcune delle premesse per un conflitto che questa volta non fu su questioni dinastiche. La Guerra dei Sette anni fu, infatti, la prima manifestazione di quel “grande gioco” politico-economico, in cui l’Inghilterra avrebbe presto primeggiato, per la supremazia commerciale nei territori coloniali. Il detonatore fu il controllo delle colonie nordamericane, dove la Francia si andava espandendo. Due coalizioni, ben diverse da quelle precedenti, si scontrarono tra il 1756 e il 1763 in tre continenti: Europa, America e Asia. Da un lato, Austria, Francia, Russia, Polonia e Svezia e, dall’altro, Inghilterra e Prussia. Gli esiti furono nefasti per quasi tutti, soprattutto sui campi di battaglia. Alla Prussia non rimase che la Slesia. Vera vincitrice fu l’Inghilterra, che estese il suo dominio su gran parte del Nord America, a Occidente, e sull’India, a Oriente.

Estratto: La guerra dei sette anni fu un conflitto che si svolse tra il 1756 e il 1763 e coinvolse le principali potenze europee dell'epoca, fra cui la Gran Bretagna, la Prussia, la Francia, l'Austria e l'Impero russo. Questa guerra venne definita da Winston Churchill come la prima vera "guerra mondiale," poich fu il primo conflitto della storia ad essere combattuto non solo sul territorio europeo, ma anche in varie parti del globo ove le potenze europee avevano dei possedimenti coloniali. Al contrario delle varie guerre di successione, la Guerra dei sette anni non fu un "conflitto dinastico," ma un "conflitto moderno" finalizzato sia alle conquiste territoriali, per ottenere l'egemonia in Europa, sia al dominio commerciale, garantito dal controllo sui traffici marittimi al quale miravano Gran Bretagna e Francia. I due schieramenti in conflitto furono la coalizione formata da Austria, Francia, Russia, Polonia e Svezia e l'alleanza fra Gran Bretagna e Prussia, la nuova potenza europea che disponeva di una formidabile macchina da guerra e, soprattutto, di un grande e ambizioso condottiero, il re Federico II. La prima met del XVIII secolo si era conclusa con il trattato di Aquisgrana, sottoscritto il 18 ottobre 1748 tra tutte le maggiori potenze d'Europa, che aveva messo fine alla lunga guerra per la successione al trono d'Austria. Gli accordi di Aquisgrana avevano sostanzialmente premiato soltanto la Prussia e il Regno Sardo, oltre ad aver restituito il Ducato di Parma e Piacenza alla sua erede legittima. Infatti, Federico II Hohenzollern, Re di Prussia, si era visto confermare il possesso della Slesia a danno ...

Europe in 1618 was riven between Protestants and Catholics, Bourbon and Hapsburg--as well as empires, kingdoms, and countless principalities. After angry Protestants tossed three representatives of the Holy Roman Empire out the window of the royal castle in Prague, world war spread from Bohemia with relentless abandon, drawing powers from Spain to Sweden into a nightmarish world of famine, disease, and seemingly unstoppable destruction.

In the eighteenth century, Britain became a world superpower through a series of sensational military strikes. Traditionally, the Royal Navy has been seen as Britain's key weapon, but in Three Victories and a Defeat Brendan Simms argues that Britain's true strength lay with the German aristocrats who ruled it at the time. The House of Hanover superbly managed a complex series of European alliances that enabled Britain to keep the continental balance of power in check while dramatically expanding her own empire. These alliances sustained the nation through the War of the Spanish Succession, the War of the Austrian Succession, and the Seven Years' War. But in 1776, Britain lost the American continent by alienating her European allies. An extraordinary reinterpretation of British and American history, Three Victories and a Defeat is a masterwork by a rising star of the historical profession.

“This could be the worthy Lord John Grey’s breakout novel, as readers are treated to large dollops of Outlander hero Jamie Fraser.”—Booklist A captivating return to the world Diana Gabaldon created in her Outlander and Lord John series, The Scottish Prisoner is a masterpiece of epic history, wicked deceit, and scores that can only be settled in blood. London, 1760. For Jamie Fraser, paroled prisoner-of-war, life is coming apart at the seams. In the remote Lake District, where he’s close enough to the son he cannot claim as his own, Jamie’s quiet existence is interrupted first by dreams of his lost wife, then by the appearance of an erstwhile comrade still fighting to rally the Irish. But Jamie has sworn off politics, fighting, and war. Until Lord John Grey shows up with a summons that will take him away from everything he loves—again. Lord John is in possession of explosive documents that expose a damning case of corruption against a British officer. But they also hint at a more insidious danger. Soon Lord John and Jamie are unwilling companions on the road to Ireland, a country whose dark castles hold dreadful secrets, and whose bogs hide the bones of the dead. Praise for The Scottish Prisoner “Call it what you will—historical adventure, conspiracy thriller—it’s an engrossing story, masterfully paced, with exciting plot twists, swift reversals, and robust characterizations.”—The Globe and Mail “As always, Gabaldon goes above and beyond. . . . If you love historical fiction, this book could be a good entrance point into the Outlander world.”—Bookreporter
