This study traces war in Europe from the aftermath of the French Revolution to the eve of the First World War. Nineteenth century Europe was profoundly affected by the Napoleonic style of warfare which shaped its history, borders and culture. Treating warfare as much wider than simply the product of military planning and technology, but a reflection of society itself, this book includes discussion of: the Napoleonic wars and the Battle of Waterloo; Napoleon III and the militarization of Europe; the Franco-Prussian War, 1870-71; new technologies and weapons; seapower and naval warfare; and the outbreak of the World War I. Combining original research on Bismarck's Wars, Austria-Hungary and Italy, with the recent writing on European armies and navies in the mopdern period, this book details the evolution of land and naval warefare and highlights the swirling interplay of society, politics and military decision-making.
