THE DESTRUCTION OF THE IMPERIAL ARMY: Volume 4: Catastrophe: Sedan, Strasbourg and Metz 1870
The fourth and concluding volume in this series takes an in-depth look at events between the humiliating French surrender at Sedan and the ignominious submission of Bazaine and the Army of the Rhine at Metz. As with previous volumes, the narrative draws heavily on the French official history and Lehautcourt's exhaustive studies, enlivened by quotes from all the major participants and eyewitnesses which provide fresh insights into the final days of this momentous campaign, which resulted in the downfall of the Second Empire and the birth of the third Republic.

Offers chapters on French and German tactics, weapons, and warfighting, and as with previous volumes in the series, includes extensive orders of battle, casualty lists and appendices, the extensive text being complemented by numerous photographs and illustrations, period maps and copies of tactical plates taken from contemporary French and German training manuals. Includes 18 color illustrations, 38 b/w illustrations, c. 120 color & 71 b/w photos, 12 color maps, and 17 tactical diagrams.1 vol, 630 pgs 2024 UK, HELION AND COMPANY
