If you can find a copy, The Franco-Prussian War by Geoffrey Wawro is an excellent history covering the lead up and execution of the war.

I'm only 65 pages into this, but I can already say it is fantastic.

And now for something completely different!

"We've got the torpedo damage temporarily shored up, the fires out and soon will have the ship back on an even keel. But I would suggest, sir, that if you have to take any more torpedoes, you take 'em on the starboard side."   Pops Healy, DCA USS Lexington.
