The is an interesting and informative reading on the Franco-Prussian War. The reading takes you through the background of the war and includes:
*Otto von Bismarck
*"Blood & Iron" Plan
*Emperor Napoleon III
*The rise of Prussia
*The dispute over Spain
*The battles of Metz and Sedan
*French surrender and the treaty of Frankfurt
*Lasting impact of the war; setting the stage for WW1
There are also review questions at the end of the reading (answer key included).
This reading goes perfectly with a detailed animated powerpoint that is also available in my store, although the reading is a great stand alone assignment as well.
