War in the East : a military history of the Russo-Turkish War, 1877-78 by Quintin Barry( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Russia declared war on the Ottoman Empire in April 1877, it was the fifth time during the nineteenth century that hostilities had broken out between the two empires. On this occasion the other Great Powers had done all they could to prevent it, although public opinion in the West had been shocked by Turkey's brutal repression of the Bulgarian uprising. The war was to be fought in two distinct theatres. In Europe, as on previouse occasions, the Russian objective was to cross first the Danube and then the formidable Balkan Mountains before striking Constantinople. In Asia, over territory also contested many times before, the Russians aimed to seize Kars and then Erzerum

"Before the War of 1866 the name Helmuth von Moltke was scarcely known outside the Prussian army ... This book follows Moltke's part in the course of the campaign at the end of which his name had become a household word. It traces his rise to the position of Chief of the General Staff, against the background of the political situation of Prussia in the middle of the 19th Century, and the way in which he developed the functions of the General Staff."--Inside cover

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first part of this comprehensive all-new two-volume military history of the Franco-Prussian War, Quintin Barry presents a detailed account of the war against the French Imperial Army waged by the armies of the German Confederation, directed by that supreme military mind, Helmuth von Moltke. The author places Moltke and his strategic planning in the context of the European balance of power following the ending of the Austria Prussian War of 1866, before exploring the initial mobilization and deployment of the armies in 1870. All of the battles of this opening round of the war are describ

Franco-Prussian War 1870-1871 Volume 2 : Helmuth von Moltke and the Defeat of the Government of National Defence by Quintin Barry( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the second part of this comprehensive all-new two-volume military history of the Franco-Prussian War, the author continues his narrative from the fall of the Second Empire until the ending of the war, and the founding of a unified Germany. The war against the Government of National Defence presented quite different problems to von Moltke and his staff.
