The Wars of German Unification is the definitive account of the three of the most decisive conflicts in the history of modern Europe. In this new edition, Dennis Showalter offers a thoroughly updated look at the wars and their context that will be invaluable for those interested in the military, social and political history of the period.

Showalter explores how the SchleswigHolstein conflict of 1864; the 'Six Weeks War' of 1866; and the FrancoPrussian War of 187071 fundamentally altered the balance of power in 19thcentury Europe. They marked the establishment of Prussian hegemony in central Europe, the creation of the Bismarckian Reich in 1871, the reduction of Habsburg influence and the collapse of Napoleon Iii's Second Empire.

The Wars of German Unification offers a balanced and incisive account of the wars, their origins and their consequences, and firmly embeds these conflicts in their political, ideological and military contexts. This volume traces the transition from the 'cabinet wars' of the 19th century and shows how the conflicts that made up the wars of German unification provided the foundation for the birth of modern warfare.

Review:

Magisterial. A work that has no equal and is unlikely ever to have any. This book contains all the qualities that have made Dennis Showalter one of the world s finest military historians. -- - David Wetzel, University of California, Berkeley, USA
