Since his paper on the Battle of Zorndorf 1758 which he gave to the BCMH Summer Conference in 2013, Adam Storring is continuing his researches into the subject.
His latest paper is:
Subjective practices of war: The Prussian army and the Zorndorf campaign, 1758
18th century warfare is traditionally seen as cautiously calculated, but BCMH member Adam Storring reveals that it was a realm of radical uncertainty, where generals relied on their own judgement and might even embrace the play of chance.
Adam Storring won the ICMH Corvisier Prize in 2019. He first addressed the Commission at our Summer Conference in 2013. The paper appeared in Mars & Clio No.36 and I now reproduce it here.
