150th anniversary of Königgrätz
150 years ago marked a decisive point in austro-german history.
A unification of germany on a large scale, including Prussia and Austria was ruled out, but can prussia emerge as a new european (super)power?

Well, Prussia got Moltke and very new breech loader rifles, Austria had neither.
At the end of a battle more than twice the size of Gettyburg, Austria was soundly defeated and Prussia about to unify non-austro-germany into the 2nd Reich in 1871.

Bismarck was at the battlefield and told Moltke, that, in case of a failure, he would seek death on the battlefield. So who knows how german, and also european history, would have went if the battle would have had a different outcome.

I imagine that history would have unfolded in a similar manner. Only the names would have changed to protect the guilty.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!
