Summary
The Franco-Prussian War of 1980-71 was the first "modern" war in Europe. It was the largest military conflict fought on European soil since the end of the Napoleonic Wars. The end of the war marked the ascendancy of imperial Germany as the preeminent military power on the continent and laid the foundation for the eventual Anglo-French rapprochement that would signal the end of two centuries of bitter rivalry. The war would be the first of the three Franco-German wars that would rend Europe asunder for the next 75 years and would play a pivotal role in shaping the history of the 20th century. The war took place at the dawn of a new era of "industrial warfare" marked by huge advances in the destructive power of infantry and artillery weapons. It was a forerunner of the devastation that modern weaponry would unleash in the First World War. This program features dramatized reenactment, expert analysis, and in-depth commentary into the causes and consequences of the Franco-Prussian War
