Description :A military plan of St. Philip's fortifications and fort on the Island of Minorca. With an inset map of Fort St. Philip with a key : 1-26.
The model was made by Therbu. Engraved by Göntgen and was included in Therbu Plans De La Guerre De Sept Ans'
The Seven Years' War lasted between 1756-1763 and involved all of the major European powers of the period. The war pitted Prussia and Britain and a coalition of smaller German states against an alliance consisting of Austria, France, Russia, Sweden, and Saxony. The British Prime Minister Newcastle remained optimistic that war could be prevented from breaking out in Europe by the new series of alliances. However a large French force was assembled at Toulon, and the French opened the campaign against the British by an attack on Minorca in the Mediterranean.
A British attempt at relief was foiled at the Battle of Minorca and the island was captured on 28 June (for which Admiral Byng was court-martialed and executed). War between Britain and France had been formally declared on 18 May nearly two years after the first fighting had broken out in the Ohio Country. ¤
