£9.50 £7.60

The battles of Columbey-Nouilly (14th August 1870) and Vionville fought two days later were part of the opening campaign of the Franco-Prssian War that saw grossly outnumbered Prussian forces compel the French to retire to the fortress of Metz, where they sat out the rest of the war. This book tells us how and why the Prussians won against all the odds.
