Bored, tired. I'm reading arguments in support of the idea of the Second Hundred Years' War--essentially from the Nine Years War through the Napoleonic Wars.
When you look at the numbers, Frederick's armies took nearly 50% losses in almost every battle--victory or defeat. His field army was usually between 30k and 50k and took between 15k and 25k losses in each battle. Even allowing for the reassignment of garrison forces into the field army, the sheer rate of replenishment required makes the fact that he found the people to replenish his army a feat that borders on the miraculous. Even more so is that with this vast turnaround in troops (let's face it, you had a 50/50 chance of surviving a battle) he maintained a sufficient quality in training, uniforming and equipage to continually outclass his opponents.
