2022 Prince Eugen of Savoy, by Nicholas Henderson (read 28 Sep 1986) I on April 30, 1972 said to myself I should read this book, but not till now have I done so. Prince Eugen was born in Paris on 18 Oct 1663. His mother was Cardinal Mazarin's niece. His mother fell into disfavor in France, and Eugen ended up serving the Hapsburgs in Austria, and died 21 Apr 1736. Napoleon ranked Prince Eugen as one of the seven greatest commanders of history, the others being: Alexander the Great, Hannibal, Caesar, Gustavus Adolphus, Turenne, and Frederick the Great. I have now read biographies of all of them but Gustavus Adolphus and Turenne. This is a good book, laudatory of Prince Eugen. He was a great soldier, and this book tells his story well. ( )
