I can not, but agree! Additionally, MAA's on the Uniforms of the Wars of Italian Unification would also be nice! Needless to say, there were important and interesting Battles in all of those Wars, so some CAM's on the main Battles would also be very wellcome.....

I'm not so sure. We have 2 MAA's on the Prussian and Allied German Armies in 1870 and 2 0n the Austrians 1836-66. Would a book on the Danes in 1864 really sell?




I think a campaign on Sadowa is a much likelier candidate to find an interested readership.

I recently watched the BBC documentary "Royal Cousins at War" which stated that the 1864 Danish-Prussian war of 1864 was the first step in setting the stage for WWI 50 years later. That is an interesting assertion for Osprey to explore in a future title.

It was certainly one link in the chain of events that led to WW1. Queen Victoria was of mainly German ancestry and tended to at least passively back the Prussians in their wars of 1864-70. However her son, who would be Edward VII, was married to Princess Alexandra of Denmark. Naturally they both abhorred Prussian expansionism and in due course Edward would play a very large part in creating the Entente with France.

I would like to see a book on the 1864 Danish War and a CAM on Koniggratz 1866.
