THE FRANCO-PRUSSIAN WAR 1870-1871 - Volume 1: The Campaign of Sedan,Helmuth von Moltke and the Overthrow of the Second Empire
by Barry, Quintin

1-197381

This first part of this new two-volume military history of the Franco-Prussian War presents a detailed account of the war between Germany and France. The author places Helmuth von Moltke and his strategic planning in the context of the European balance of power following the ending of the Austria Prussian War of 1866, then explores the initial mobilization and deployment of the armies in 1870.

All of the battles in the opening round of the war are described in detail, including Weissenburg, Worth, Spicheren, Borny-Colombey, Mars la Tour, Gravelotte, Beaumont, and Sedan. The book ends as the Second Empire of Napoleon III lies defeated, crushed by the German armies directed by von Moltke. The author has made full use of an extensive number of German and French language sources. His detailed text is accompanied by a number of black and white illustrations and battle maps. Orders of battle are also provided.
