The history of Maurice Count Saxe, Field-Marshal of the French forces, Duke elect of Courland and Semigallia. Containing a curious account of all the wars of Europe since the treaty of Utrecht, in which he was concerned: with a detail of the several battles and sieges wherein he either commanded or assisted: particularly those of Prague, Aschaffenburg, Fontenoy, Lawfeldt and Bergen-op-zoom: besides the invasion of Scotland, the expedition to Port l'Orient, and many other remarkable transactions. To which are annexed, his last will; and a description of his pompous funeral. The whole interspersed with various other particulars, relating to the amours both of himself and his father, King Augustus; as well as to his election in Courland, and the unlucky effects of his flighting the dutchess, who would have married him, and was afterwards empress of Russia. Written by an officer of distinction. Translated from the French
