5.0 von 5 Sternen The Franco Prussian War, 26. April 2000
The Franco Prussian War of 1870-1871 was one of the most important wars of The Nineteenth century. This war would set the stage for what European wars would be like from then on. It also optioned for Germany a respect and imitation for years to come. In this book many subjects are discussed. First the different technologies and reforms of the French and Prussians are chronicled. Then the different mobilizations of both sides, their battle plans and the concentrations of the armies before fighting started. Then the first engagements are described in great detail. Then the great battle of Sedan is laid out for all to see. Then the siege of Paris and the war in the south and west of France is told in great description. Lastly the last battles of Orleans are described and then the following peace treaty is laid out. In conclusion the Franco Prussian War by Michael Howard is a good book for anyone interested in history or politics. If the book has any problems it may be the lack of translation of French and German in the text and in the footnotes. Despite this problem the book represents the Nineteenth century very well.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An overview of the progress of the Franco-Prussian war, 2. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I have read only the 1961 edition, so my apologies for any discrepancies between that and the current edition. A concise overview of the contemporary political and technical scene precedes a series of detailed accounts of major clashes in the war. The engagements are detailed to the extent of considering unit actions, down to regiments, and the terrain over which they operated. Leading figures on either side are appraised, usually scathingly. Translations into English are the norm, except in footnotes. The tone of the book, to the reviewer, was somewhat condescending towards civil authorities. In reply, it could be said that the book is primarily a military history. Still, the reviewer feels that a more expansive consideration of the political causes and consequences of the war, on both sides of the Rhine, would have been useful. Considering the book as a detailed study of the clash of arms that led to an astonishing tabula rasa in Europe and the World, "The Franco-Prussian War - The German Invasion of France 1870-1871" will be found very enlightening.
