Strange War of Austrian Succession! Although having inspired the writing of beautiful pages of the French national novel through the figures of Maurice de Saxe and Chevert, this conflict has in fact brought to light the failings of the French military system. Although known and commented by the fighters and back, they were a posteriori eclipsed by the memory of success as the capture of Prague and the Battle of Fontenoy. The glorious actions of Maurice de Saxe in Flanders skewed the perception of the quality of the French army and especially of his command. From sources revisited or unpublished, this book makes it possible to understand through the study of French operations on the European continent why a war finally victorious outcome actually reflects the military crisis of the eighteenth century and announces the fatal failures of the Seven Years' War.
