Field-Marshal Von der Goltz was one of the most widely read military authors of the late 19th century; his ideas and theories of the “Nation in Arms” were to be brought into practice during the First World War, during which he served. His wide military experience ranged from the practical during the 1866 Bohemian campaign to the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71, before moving on to staff and teaching posts.
He authored many works during his time as part of the historical section of the Prussian General Staff, mostly about the theory of war and the victorious campaigns of the 1870-71. A fiercely patriotic man, he was inspired to write about the great defeat of the Prussian army of 1806 as part history and part catharsis. His work is supremely detailed and his great critical military mind avoids bias in favour of the Prussians. This title is acclaimed as a military classic along with his “Von Rossbach bis Jena und Auerstädt” and “Nation in Arms”.
