Das Kriegsjahr 1866 in der Festungsstadt Königgrätz in den Zeugnissen der Dokumente und Erinnerungen der Einwohner
In 2016, 150 years will have passed since the Austro-Prussian War. Near the fortress of Hradec Králové, the decisive battle of this conflict took place, with Austria losing. The fortress was besieged and its immediate surroundings were flooded. Using eyewitness accounts and historical realities, the author describes the until recently-rarely revisited life of the civilian populations in the besieged fortress.
