The second of three volumes from Mark Hewitson which explore the experiences of conflict in modern Germany, and the resounding impact of these across Europe and the world, The People's War takes a new look at the 'wars of unification' and charts the rise of nationalism and the breakdown of the existing state system in the 1850s and 1860s.
