The Franco-German war of 1870-71 by Helmuth Moltke( Book )

36 editions published between 1873 and 2016 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illustrated with over 30 maps and diagrams of the War. There are few military strategists that can be mentioned in the same breath as Field-Marshal Helmuth Graf Von Moltke, a towering military figure who helped define the Federal German state with his military brilliance. Although born into a Danish family and trained for the Danish Army, he transferred to the Prussian army and by 1822 he was enrolled at the famous Prussian Kriegsakadamie, studying under the revered Clausewitz. He fully digested the organic theories of warfare expounded by Clausewitz, and enhanced his already brilliant prospects by studying languages and devouring literature and history with equal gusto. He was one of the first to realize the military potential of the new railway networks that were being built across Europe around this time, a factor that would shape the Prussian/German war planning for years to come. Having gained the pinnacle of his profession as the Chief of the General Staff in 1857; the next fourteen years would place a heavy burden on him at the head of the German Land Forces that would be the cutting edge of Teutonic expansion. He tested his theories of war first in the war of 1866 against the Austrians pulling off the astonishing victory of Kn̲iggratz by a combination of brilliant planning, superior fighting ability, swift marching and trust in his subordinates. His greatest successes would be against the much vaunted French army in 1870-71. he realized that although numbers would be against them the German military machine was much more effective at mobilization, manoeuvre and above all drive and determination. The story of his successes during the war are recounted in this volume with reticence, modesty and honesty; he is very careful not point out too many of the errors of the German Generals but spares none of the French commanders. An excellent war memoir from a renowned general widely regarded as one of the foremost military strategists of the 19th century

Moltke on the art of war : selected writings by Helmuth Moltke( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Field Marshal Helmuth Graf von Moltke is best known for his direction of the German/Prussian campaigns against Austria in 1866 and France in 1870-71, yet it was during his service as chief of the General Staff that he laid the foundation for the German way of war which would continue through 1945. Professor Daniel Hughes of the Air War College, in addition to editing and assisting with the translation of this selection of Moltke's thoughts and theories on the art of war, has written an insightful commentary on "Moltke the Elder" that places him in the broader context of Prussian and military thought. Hughes notes that Moltke's writings helped shape the practical application of influential Prussian military theorist Carl von Clausewitz's sometimes abstract philosophical ideas. The book also contains an extensive bibliographic and historiographic commentary that includes references to Moltke and his theories in the current literature in Germany, England, and the United States - a valuable aid to anyone doing research on the subject. This volume, in addition to its appeal to scholars, serves as an introduction to the theory of the German army, as well as a summary of Moltke's enduring theoretical legacy
