Item description for THE SEVEN WEEKS WAR OF 1866: Its Antecedents and Incidents, Based Upon Letters Reprinted from 'The Times' by Henry Hozier...
This remains one of the classic works on the Seven Weeks War of 1866. The author, Sir Henry Hozier, was Winston Churchill's father-in-law, a career army officer, journalist, and later in life, Secretary of Lloyd's. At the outbreak of the war Hozier was 28 years old, an army officer who was appointed Special Correspondent of the Times, attached to the Prussian First Army of Prince Frederick Charles. He managed to keep up with the rapid Prussian advance, and provides an outstanding personal narrative relating his experiences combined with a clear narrative of the campaign on a wider scale. This is a newly typeset edition, with introduction by Duncan Rogers outlining Hozier's life and the place his account of the 1866 Campaign occupies in the War's historiography. All of the original maps from the first edition are retained.
