I am not historian but 18th century military history fascinates me, especially in Europe. Can you recommend me please a good book covering Austrian Succession War and if possible any of its battles: Fontenoy, Dettingen, Bassignana?

Try Reed Browning's "The War of the Austrian Succession". Only book I can think of on that topic.
Thank you for your suggestion. I also purchased this one:

Fontenoy, Britain & The War of Austrian Succession, 1740-1748, With a Short Account of the Battle of Fontenoy


Contains a chapter about Fontenoy battle and Dettingen battle.

Try Reed Browning's "The War of the Austrian Succession". Only book I can think of on that topic.
I've read that one and it is maybe the best single-volume description of the whole war. Comprehensive yet very easy reading. Highly recommended.
