about

Few Generals left such a shining legacy of military genius and glory than Frederick the Great and his Prussian army, however, this reputation was hard fought and grimly won against the forces of Austria. The leading Austrian general, who frustrated many of Frederick’s designs, was General Frieherr von Loudon, a soldier through and through. In this detailed biography, noted military author Colonel Malleson traces Loudon’s rise from obscurity to the forefront of the Austrian military effort of the Seven Years War. One of the few generals to have bested the Prussians; he won brilliant victories at Hochkirch, Kunersdorf, Landshut, Glatz and Schweidnitz. Frederick himself when talking over the events of the war, then a thing of the past, with his generals, he exclaimed: “We all of us made mistakes, except my brother Henry and Loudon.”
