Review of Sedan, 1870: The Eclipse of France by Douglas Fermer

Author:  Douglas Fermer.
Title:  Sedan, 1870:  The Eclipse of France.
Publisher:  Pen and Sword Publishing.
Copyright:  2008.
Pages:  321.

Overview and Observations:

I read Sedan, 1870 to get a better idea of the battle that doomed the Second Empire.  Douglas Fermer paid specific detail to the individual soldiers who fought.  The major players of the Franco-Prussian War are also spelled out.  About half the book is the background leading up to the conflict.  The rest is the actual battle of Sedan itself.
