This work is a study of the Army of the Prussian King Frederick the Great. It depicts the uniforms of an army whose military successes laid the foundation for the rise of 18th century Prussia as a major European power, and which, like its royal commander, became the military ideal for all of Europe. Their particular style and the grandeur of their equipment were widely copied, and—uniquely for that day—collected by Frederick's successors for posterity. The result of those efforts is the world's best collection of 18th century uniforms, now in Berlin's Deutsches Historisches Museum, located in the old Royal Arsenal, the Zeughaus.
