Book Description Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Two manuscripts in one book: History of Prussia: A Captivating Guide to the Kingdom of Prussia and Its Role in the Napoleonic Wars, Franco-Prussian War, and Unification of Germany in 1871The Franco-Prussian War: A Captivating Guide to the War of 1870 between the French Empire and German States and the Role Otto von Bismarck Played in the Unification of GermanyThis book will take you on a thrilling ride through history, starting with the modest origins of Prussia and its Hohenzollern dynasty. You will be amazed at how they traversed the historical barbwire of late medieval times, unwillingly entangled in wars with greater powers and religious reformation.Then, just when you think Prussia will be swept away by violent forces out of its control, you will see how stubborn the Prussians were as they overcome various hurdles. You will learn of their struggles against the Habsburgs and Austria, France and Napoleon, and many other adversaries in the countless wars in which the Prussians found themselves, wars which weren't always won by them.Along the way, you will be introduced with how the Prussian state, society, and culture changed over time, transforming from a medieval feudal country into a modern industrial empire. This book will also show how a local Prussian identity, coming from a place of humility, evolved and grew into a proud nation and a bulwark of German identity and nation.Finally, this guide will show you the exciting tale of how Prussia gathered enough strength to achieve the unification of German lands into a single nation-state through a series of wars and bold politics and machinations. Through all of this, you will learn what set the course of German history that would be so impactful on the 20th century.Some of the topics covered in part 1 of this book include: How did the Prussian state emerge on the historical stage?What fueled its growth, and how did it fit in the Holy Roman Empire?How did the Hohenzollern dynasty shape the Prussian tale?How did Prussia survive the Thirty Years' War?What saved Prussia from crumbling under Napoleon?Which changes were needed for its military to become the world's finest?How did Prussia unify the German Empire through conflict?Why was King Frederick II Prussia's greatest monarch?How important a role did Otto von Bismarck play for the final evolution of Prussia?What were the roots of Prussian nationalism?Some of the topics covered in part 2 of this book include: When did Franco-German animosity begin?What led to the eruption of war in 1870?Why was the Prussian military superior on the front lines?What were the biggest flaws of the French generals?Where did the largest French defeat of the 19th century take place?Why did the war only last six months?How did the German Empire unify through conflict?Which were the most devastating terms of the 1871 peace treaty?How important was the role of Otto von Bismarck throughout the war?What were the consequences of a German victory over the French?And much more!Scroll up and click the "add to cart" button to learn more about The History of Prussia and The Franco-Prussian War!.
