The Seven Years War (17561763) is the name given to the last great conflict involving all the major powers of Europe, except Turkey, before the French Revolutionary Wars. Described as the first truly "world war" it was fought partly in Europe, where Frederick the Greats Prussia, aided by Great Britain, electoral Hanover, Hesse-Kassel and Brunswick challenged the combined might of Austria, France, other German states and Russia. The global context of the war refers to the so-called French and Indian War, which broke out in North America between the French and the British before 1756, and the continuing hostilities of that period between the French and British East India companies

A selection of German wartime photographs from the Bundesarchiv, Koblenz. In the Balkans Hitler, partly through his own obstinacy and partly through the sheer incompetence of his allies, was embroiled in a cruel guerrilla campaign. The partisans, operating from their mountain hideouts, were able to keep the Germans engaged in a contest which they could not win, but which they could not afford to lose. And all the time valuable resources were being drained from such vital theatres as Russia and Italy. Here, told with the aid of many high quality photographs taken by German war correspondents, is one of the stories which decided the outcome of the war.
