Still no campaign title about Koniggratz/Sadowa, 1866

grendel

I don't understand why we still have to wait for a campaign title about one of the crucial wars in nineteenth century Europe. Lots of new WWII books (some about pretty minor operations), but the war that made Germany a superpower and changed the whole history of the continent apparently isn't interesting enough.

Maybe Osprey is waiting for the 150th anniversary of Koeniggraetz in 2016 to release a book on the subject? Similarly, I suspect the upcoming centenary of the outbreak of World War One may result in several obvious gaps being filled over the next few years - Tannenberg, Passchendaele and Caporetto are all glaringly absent from the Campaign series. Several other major WW1 battles (e.g., Second Ypres, Loos, the Brusilov Offensive, the rest of the Somme battles after the first day, Salonika and Second Marne) may show up too.

Hello: Sadowa was a crucial battle of the 19th century for two reasons, Prussia become the leader of a german unification process without Austria, and the triumph of the breechloader over the muzzleloader.

I too would buy these titles, not only because they are significant to the rise of Prussia (Germany) and the later wars of the first half of the twentieth century, but because tactically they demonstrate a transition into modern warfare with the widespread adoption of the all arms Corps, and the creation of the general staff. This amid new technologies of breech-loading weapons and rail transport make the suggested Campaign titles of Konniggratz (Sadowa) 1866, and Sedan 1870, desirable to a wide range of readers. Please Osprey, at least put these titles to the book vote.

We can't forget the struggle for supremacy between Prussia and Austrian Empire in Europe. Within Sedan, Koniggratz was the most important battle fought by European countries / in Europe after Napoleon era and before the IWW
