Example text

T h e valley of the Moselle in Rhenish Prussia forms a deep and winding clough, which the river has worked out for itself through a plateau, which rises to the south of the valley into a considerable range called the Hochwald. As this range approaches the Rhine the plateau character becomes more predominant, until the last outlying hills meet the farthest spurs of the Vosges. Neither the Vosges nor the Hochwald are absolutely impracticable for an army; both are crossed by several good high-roads, but neither are of that class of ground where armies of from 200,000 to 300,000 men could operate with advantage.

I a [The Pall Mall Gazette, No. 1703, July 29, 1870] Scarcely a shot has been fired so far, and yet a first stage of the war has passed away, ending in disappointment to the French Emperor. A few observations on the political and military situation will render this evident. It is now admitted on all hands that Louis Napoleon expected to be able to isolate the North German Confederation 9 from the Southern States, and to take advantage of the disaffection existing in the newly annexed Prussian provinces.

This plan presupposes the concentration of the whole German army between the Vosges and the Moselle. The Army of the Centre (Prince Frederick Charles, with the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 12th corps) would have to take up a position either adjoining the left flank of Steinmetz or behind him as a reserve. The Army of the South (the Crown Prince, 3 with the 5th Corps, the Guards, and the South Germans) would form the left wing, somewhere about Zweibrücken. As to where all these troops are, and how they are to be transported to their positions, we know nothing.
