9781331032304: Bohemia (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Bohemia

The Austro-Prussian conflict of 1866 was so immediately and completely eclipsed by the far greater events of 1870, that for many years its study was neglected, and even now its bibliography is remarkably small. Nevertheless it is a campaign of great importance. It was then that von Moltke demonstrated for the first time those theories of war which were afterwards embodied in his now famous Memorandum for the Guidance of Superior Officers. Those theories formed the basis of the strategy of 1866, 1870, and of the Russo-Japanese War of1904-5 ;they also form the basis upon which the handling of German armies is founded to-day. Nevertheless they are still the subjects of heated controversy. Throughout the earlier part of the campaign the strategical weakness of an invasion along separate lines was apparent in a very marked degree, and by no one was it appreciated more clearly than by von Moltke; in the culminating battle of K5niggratz the tactical strength of a converging attack was exemplified no less strongly. It is clear, therefore, if indeed proof be needed, that it is during the earlier stages of a campaign that armies operating from different bases are most vulnerable.
