An excellent read for those interested in nineteenth century military history, as well as German and Italian history. * New York Military Affairs Symposium Review * This is a good readable campaign history, but is also excellent on the clash between the military and political leaders and the problems faced by Moltke in imposing his will on his fellow officers, a task made more difficult by the presence of senior members of the Royal family in command of two of the three armies. * History of War 03/08/2015 *
