Title:
The problem of national identity within the German armies during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870/71
Authors:
Dobbert, Monique
Abstract:
The German Wars of Unification between 1864 and 1871, which united the North German Confederation with the southern states, received only limited academic attention overall. Historians throughout Europe, more so in Germany, engaged primarily with political and military aspects of the conflicts whereby they focused strongly on Prussia and rarely accounted for other German states. In the field of cultural and social history, however, there is a significant lack of publications. Despite the historical importance of these wars, especially the Franco-Prussian War, the subject is often overshadowed by the global, more multifarious conflicts of the twentieth century which aroused the interest of academics. Therefore, research in this field is far from exhausted and the topic offers much room for further investigation.
