CHARLES XI's WAR: The Scanian War Between Sweden and Denmark, 1675-1679
The book describes and analyses the Scanian War, which was fought from 1675 to 1679 between, on one side, primarily Brandenburg and Denmark-Norway and, on the other side, SE - Sweden.
The war was mainly fought in Scania, the former Danish lands along the border with Sweden, and in northern Germany. The Danish objective was to retrieve Scania which, a generation earlier, had been captured by SE - Sweden and ceded by Denmark.
Although the Danish fleet was victorious at sea, and an alliance headed by Brandenburg defeated the Swedes in Germany, the subsequent peace negotiations resulted in no major territorial changes. Danish partisans continued guerrilla operations in Scania for years, yet the former Danish territories remained in Swedish hands. However, the Danish invasion of Scania was defeated by the young Swedish King Charles XI. Includes 75 b/w illustrations, 27 b/w photos, 14 b/w maps, and 8 color plates.
