TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE. THE CAMPAIGN IN WEST AND SOUTH GERMANY, JUNE-JULY 1866

£29.95 £4.99

The war of 1866, fought between Austria and Prussia, along with their respective allies, has sadly been a struggle underrepresented in English language literature. Clearly overshadowed by the longer and more dramatic Franco-Prussian War, it is nonetheless just as important, if not more, in the development of Germany as the unified nation it became. Much of what is currently available in print and in English, focuses on the primary theatre of operations in Bohemia, with scant reference to the war as it played out in Italy and western Germany.
Embree gives the struggles between the Prussians and allies against the Federal German forces a very thorough examination, detailing decisions and battles The stage is set, both politically and militarily and the reader is given a clear picture of how events unfolded.
