About the Author

Gerhard Georg Bernhard Ritter (April 6, 1888 - July 1, 1967) was a nationalist-conservative German historian, who served as a professor of history at the University of Freiburg from 1925 to 1956. Peter Paret is American military, cultural and art historian with a particular interest in German history.


"Ritter's book is complex, subtle, and scholarly, and deserves to be read two or three times. . . There is no aspect of Frederick's government or wars that Ritter does not analyze with subtlety and usually with conviction."--"New York Review of Books
