“The most certain way of insuring victory is to march briskly and in good order against the enemy, always endeavoring to gain ground”.-Frederick the Great of Prussia

Prussia sided with England and went to war with France and Russia during the Seven Years' War from 1756-1763, when Russia surrendered. After he won this war, he seperated the Prussian government into seperate ministries. This assisted him in gaining more executive control.

He was seen as the father of the Prussian military. Being in power for such a long time the Enlightment philosophy was unified.

His reforms led to the Prussian Civil Code. He felt that there should be impartial ruling to protect people from the arbitrary will of the prince.
