Show notes: 1. Sorry for the late release, there was a mistake in the video and the renders take dozens of hours. 2. Please, don't get political. Liberalism and Nationalism of that era were quite different in comparison to the modern incarnations. 3. We glossed over the Revolutions of 1848, Italian Independence Wars and Schleswig Wars. They will be covered down the line. 4. a7a6f4 https://www.color-hex.com/color/a7a6f4 is used for the smaller states within the German Confederation. 5. Consider supporting us via patreon https://www.patreon.com/kingsandgenerals - we have many new projects on the way and even $1 helps. Thanks!

The Austrian failure to link up with their allies was the key mistake - right at the start. They could do little about their relatively primitive rifles - but the failure to link up with their allies was a terrible unforced error.

+Kings and Generals Thank you. I want to correct myself. Maybe to show it in general, and to focus on one of the great battles from it. For example the II. Battle of Komárom from 2nd July 1849, a battle between Hungarians on one side and the Austro-Russian united army on the other side. That battle was full of turns, and ended with a great cavalry charge of 3000 hussars, led personally by the Hungarian commander Artúr Görgei, who was heavily injuried at the end of it.

On Weaponery. American Civil War ended in 1865, at the end of the war (or during the war actually), Pistol, Winchester rifle, Gatling gun were introduced. And yet Prussian soldiers (and Danish, and Austrian) charged in a straight line, which was not a surprise since they did the same in 50 years later.

Thing is that U.S. army only really replaced muskets with trap door Springfield 1865 rifles, which were single shot just like the Prussian Dreise needle gun,so not surprising really that tactics remained the same, although such weapons did allow and Prussians did use advantages like ability to load while pron and taking cover, which reduced Prussian casualties significantly.
