It is slightly from the Danish point of view, but the author is entirely critical of the Danish Government's decision to adjust the status of Schleswig-Holstein. Indeed, in the frenzied diplomacy prior to the war, the splitting of Schleswig-Holstein into its component linguistic parts was discussed but rejected by Denmark. After WWI of course, the Duchy did split and the situation in Northern Europe is very peaceful because.
As far as critical thinking, I was really surprised that the Union Army in 1864 didn't adopt the Dreyse Needle Gun. I can only speculate that American Gun Manufacturers had already made the jump to fixed metallic cartridges, as seen in the Henry Rifle and there was no reason to do such a massive switch.
All in all this is a really enjoyable book.
Also, and a minor nit to pick, I wish the author had not revealed the fates of some of the soldiers early in his book.It would have been more interesting, as you went along, to not know what would happen to this person or that person.
