I have put my hand up to give a talk to my U3A history group on the Franco-Prussian War. I have started my research with this book.
Hard going - full of facts - very academic. I liked it but I cannot say I enjoyed it, on numerous occasions I got to the end of a sentence or a paragraph and I had to go back and reread it. Definitely a book for the specialist French history bod. A very good place to start my research.
