An interesting book, with great potential 2013/2/20
投稿者 Epops - (
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I bought this book because I had just finished Emil Ludwig's biography of Bismarck and was looking for something recent about the Franco-Prussian War. I was struck by its title, because the Franco-Prussian War did indeed change the world.

There is no doubt that the author has picked an extremely important event to describe and one that does not receive the attention it deserves. His introduction is to the point and well written: "The Forgotten Wars, and Why We Should Remember Them." He sets the stage by describing the outcome of the Napoleonic Wars and the evolution of the Concert of Europe, and the subsequent rise of Prussia to European dominance. The rest of the book appears to be well organized and thorough, a clear and exciting narrative of events.

However, almost every page seems to contain a major error in grammar or usage that sticks out like a sore thumb. While reading, I notice the errors and begin to analyze them, and then lose interest in the narrative. Good writing should be transparent, not a barrier to communication between author and reader. In this the author doesn't succeed, unfortunately. He pays his respects to his editor in the acknowledgements, but the editor must have been asleep when he allowed a paragraph like the following on p. 18 to slip into the text:

"Many historians, also novelists, poets and playwrights, talk about a great peace/calm/silence settling over Europe after Napoleon departed its shores. Unless they are speaking metaphorically this is not true; not even the fighting died away completely after he left. There was the fate of the artificial kingdoms and thrones he had created. Problems that the Congress of Vienna wrestled with even as the armies converged on each other in southern Belgium."

If you don't see the errors of grammar and usage in this sample, and you enjoy reading history, you will enjoy this book. If you do see them, then be prepared to find errors like these on almost every page.

Writing a book like this took a great deal of time and effort, and the author deserves credit for it. If his editor had encouraged him to polish his writing so that it wasn't a barrier to his readers, I would have given it five stars plus.

Revised 8/4/13

One of the best history books I have ever read 2014/10/5
投稿者 Gannet - (

I found this to be a unique military history. Not so much for the subject (although that is obscure enough these days, as the title attests) but for the way he covers it.

Yes, in the detail portions he gets down into the nitty-gritty of troop movements, particular battles and commanders, etc., and does so very well. But what makes this book different is how he ties the war into events 50 years and more prior to and after it. In doing so, he shows WHY the war was fought, and what the long-term EFFECTS were. the scope of the book goes from 1805 and Austerlitz and ends up in 1901 Europe and shows the how First World War was in many ways a byproduct of this war.

History, especially military history, is so often presented as a little snapshot, a vignette. This book, like perhaps no other military history I have every read, couples the detailed vignette with the much larger picture.

An outstanding achievement. Even if you have no particular interest in this war, if you have any interest in European or 20th Century history, read this book. Highly Recommended.

Writing is not the best 2014/5/18
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
This is a good historical review with the first third of the book detailing the events the led from Napoleon to the actual war. Gives a good look at the causes and effects leading up to it. What is irritating is that the author changes tenses throughout the book. One minute he is in past tense and then suddenly he is in present tense.

Good summary 2014/5/12
投稿者 Eric J. Hartsfield - (
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
While I would not put this book in the same category as Wawro and other more recent works it is a good overview of not only the war itself but of the periods before and after. However like many works dealing with military history it could have used more maps. But overall not a bad introduction to the Franco-Prussian War.

cries out for an editor 2015/4/1
投稿者 Paul McCabe - (
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
this book defeated itself, despite my strong interest in the subject matter.
it is full of poor grammar, misspellings, typos, and partial sentences.
it cries out for an editor.
the author constantly switches between past-tense narration and present-tense story-telling.
i have never seen this oddity in any history book.
the author somehow manages to misspell words equally in german, french, and english.
i have no criticism of his themes, which are well-developed, or of his presentation of factual details, which is interesting.
i did learn a lot about the franco-prussian war.
but on the whole the book seems written by someone who got Ds or Fs in his english classes.
these 100s of errors of every kind mar the entire text.
