Overview

Between 1870 and 1871, the world changed forever.

The Franco-Prussian War is often a forgotten war, its significance lost amidst larger conflicts such as the Napoleonic Wars and World War I.

But, while it lasted less than a year, its aftermath would shape the course of history for decades to come.

In this comprehensive and epic account, John-Allen Price explores how this short but far-reaching war came to be, bringing the men who shaped history to life. Price examines the Franco-Prussian War and its world, from the seeds of the war in the Age of Napoleon to the Paris Commune, and the aftershocks that led to a century of slaughter, a war to end all wars, and an even greater war after that.

"John-Allen Price's *The War that Changed the World* is a brilliantly written and exhaustively researched masterwork. With all the attention to detail one would expect of Keegan or Ambrose, Price has created a stunningly entertaining and thorough examination of an historical era which shaped the conflicts of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Price's examination of the Franco-Prussian war is engrossing, entertaining and delightfully readable—presented with a historian's eye for detail and a novelist's ear for story. Students of military history pass this book by at their peril."

"The War That Changed The World" is an extraordinary book filled with very interesting information. The book makes the events come to life. The detail is phenomenol. This is not just another history book - it is an analysis of events that holds your attention (in the interest of full disclosure, I should point out that I received a free copy of the book from John-Allen because I helped John-Allen gather some historical information from the Internet for the book).
