This book recounts the period of the Franco-Prussian War from the investment of Paris (19 September 1870) to the second fall of Orleans, December 1870. During this period the Government of National Defence and civil population of France began a national war against the German invaders. The author presents a fascinating account of the difficulties of forming large ad hoc conscript armies into effective military units. It includes a detailed account of the first French victory of the war, at Coulmiers, and of the great breakout attempt from Paris at the end of November 1870.
