Osprey Men-at-Arms 416 : German Armies 1870-1871 (1) : Prussia

The crushing victory of Prussia and her German allies in the Franco-Prussian War, 1870-71, destroyed one empire and created another. It finally unified the German states into an Empire under Prussian leadership - an Empire proclaimed in the very halls of captured Versailles. In 1870 Prussia's reformed mobilization system put enormous armies into the field with unprecedented efficiency. The confidence which the victory encouraged among German militarists, and the intolerable humiliation it inflicted upon France, ensured that an even more destructive war would soon inevitably follow. This first of two books lists and illustrates the units of Prussia and her North German Confederation, the powerhouse of a formidable military machine. Text by Michael Solka with illustrations by Darko Pavlovic.
