Fontenoy: France Rules Over Europe by Denis Gandilhon
May 1745. After a brief start to the campaign, the French Army under the Marechal de Saxe laid siege to Tournai in Flanders. The Anglo-Dutch army came to the aid of the besieged town and fought on unfavorable terrain with, as a result, one of the greatest victories for the French Army. A military history enthusiast, Denis Gandilhon presents his first book about the strategic and tactical situations of the battle. The book is illustrated though out with images of the battle and uniform plates.
