Solid hardcover.; "From the reign of Louis XIV to the demise of the First Republic, France at one time or another engaged in hostilities with all of Europe's great powers and many of the smaller ones. Louis XIV waged four major wars: the War of Devolution, the Dutch War, the War of the League of Augsburg, and the War of the Spanish Succession. He also launched numerous small-scale military operations and nearly became Europe's dominant power. His successors sought more limited objectives, but they, too, fought four major conflicts: the Polish Succession War, the Austrian Succession War, the Seven Years' War, and the War of the American Revolution. They also undertook many minor campaigns and never abandoned the pursuit of power and influence. Revolutionary governments from 1792 to 1799 were constantly at war fighting at first to stave off defeat and then to impose a victorious peace on ther enemies." - Introduction.
