The Wars of German Unification 1864 - 1871, Paperback

The Wars of German Unification 1864 - 1871 Paperback

Part of the Origins of Modern War series


In his last book, the late William Carr provides a masterly account of the origins and impact of the three major wars fought by Prussia in creating the Bismarckian Reich of 1871.

He begins with a study of the development of nationalism and liberalism from the late eighteenth century to the 1860's, before turning to a detailed examination of the Schleswig-Holstein Conflict of 1864; the 'Six Weeks War' of 1866; and the Franco-Prussia War of 1870--71.
