Historical Setting: Europe, 1760 A. D.

Fergus Drummond is a Scotsman who seeks his future in Europe where he joins his cousin, Marshal Keith, who is in the service of the King of Prussia, Frederick the Great. Among the great wars of history there are few, if any, instances of so long and successfully sustained a struggle against enormous odds as that of the Seven Years' War, maintained by Prussia. While every schoolboy knows of the battles of ancient Greece, not one in a hundred has any knowledge whatever of the momentous struggle in Germany, or has ever as much as heard the names of the memorable battles of Rossbach, Leuthen, Prague, Zorndorf, Hochkirch, and Torgau.
