Battle of Königgrätz 1866 - Austro-Prussian War DOCUMENTARY

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!

I always find it a bit weird there are so many statues of Bismarck in Germany. To me that man is as bad as Napoleon and his aggressive and ruthless politics indirectly lead to the world wars. Hardly someone to admire. He did unify Germany (with iron and blood and diplomacy backed by those two) but I'm not even sure that is such a great thing anyway (especially as the unified Germany adopted a lot of the Prussian culture and militarism).

Austrians simply didn't take any advantage from this territory. I am from Czechia and I know almost every stone there. Austrians had river, forests, villages and hills/ridges on their side and still lost. They could win quite easily this battle but incompetence of Austrian generals was worldwide known. They just proved it even here.

+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.
