Abstract

The aspiration of the current paper is to analyze the three major post-Napoleonic European conflicts. These were the Crimean War (1853-1856), the Prussian-Austrian war (1866) and the Prussian-French war (1870-1871) from their economics perspective. We aim to demonstrate that behind military success in the battlefield there is always an effi cient economic-industrial mobilization. The structure of the paper is as follows: In the fi rst section we provide a theoretical framework in order to analyze the confl ict. We use the Diamond Model and the Square of Power Model as our theoretical models. The second section provides, an overview of the confl icts, and demonstrates the economic forces which influenced the outcome. Conclusions follow providing a nexus between the theory and the case study.
