Sample text

The wars of 1866 and 1871 differed; the foray against Austria/Hungary in 1866 was carried out in the spirit of bringing an errant child into line, as well as banishing Austria from a role in the affairs of Germany. Bruised pride for the one part and a generous treaty on conclusion of the hostilities prevented lasting ill will but ensured the dual kingdom did as it was told in the future.
