The Battle of Spicheren

Author(s): G. F. R. Henderson

Wars of the Ages

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.
