The Sardinian Independence War (Sardinian: Gherra cum Libertade) was a conflict between the newly formed Kingdom of Sardinia and the Kingdom of France that lasted from 1756 to 1760. Most of the conflict occurred in the northern half of Sardinia, in and around the city of Sassari, however the final offensive of the war saw the fighting shift to the capital city of Cagliari. Some historians consider this war to be continued fighting in the larger Great Silesian War, but this is not a universally accepted claim.
