Overview
-

This account, penned by a noted British military historian of the late nineteenth century, remains one of the best narratives of a nineteenth century battle yet published. Henderson based this detailed and considered account of one of the opening battles of the Franco-Prussian War upon not only General Staff works and other official sources, but also many other accounts, including regimental histories. Also includes comprehensive maps.

About The Author
-

Henderson was born in Jersey in 1854. Educated at Leeds Grammar School, of which his father, afterwards Dean of Carlisle, was headmaster, he was early attracted to the study of history, and obtained a scholarship at St John's College, Oxford. But he soon left the University for Sandhurst, from where he was commissioned into the 84th Foot in 1878.
