Among living masters of the art of war, a
high if not the highest place must be assigned
to ilelmntb Charles Bernard Count Ton iMoItke.
chief of the Staff to Ihe i'russiaa army. To the
skillful combinations of this great strategist were
due the remarkable success of the Seven Weeks'
War with Austria in 186G, as well as the still
more amazing triumphs of the recent campaign
It is a notable illustration of., the truth that
geuius is largely dependent for its recognition
upon external circumstances, that MoUko was
unknown to the world nine years ago. though be
had already reached tbe mature age of sixty-one.
No reference to him could then be found either
in Vaperau's comprehensive Dictionnaire des
Contemporains, the LeipzigJnii ner 'der Zeit,
or the voluminous Noytelle Biographie of
H Offer, nor as late as 1BC8 does his name appear
in the literary annual, Men of the Time. Yet
even then he had exhibited the military abilities
which were highly appreciated by the Cabinet ol
Berlin, and only needed a wider theatre of action
to gain a world-wide fame. The reputations of
the distinguished members of his family whose
names are preservedjn the Conversations Lexi
kons, and other biographical dictionaries among
whom is Count Adam von Moltke. prime minister
of Denmark about twenty-five years ago have
been eclipsed by his renown.
lie was born at Samrow, near Gnewitz, in
Mecklenburg, on the 26th of October, 1800, the
same year as the historians Macaulay and Ban
croft. Soon after his birth, his father removed
to Holstein.nnd it was among the Banes that the
future general first cultivated the military talents
which many years later were .effectively turned
against them. When only twelve years of age,
he became a member of the Academy of Military
Cadets at Copenhagen, being only two years
older than Napoleon when he entered the mili
tary school at Brienne. Thus, even in childhood,
was laid the foundation of the succe$3 which was
crowned with its highest honors at the ripe bed
of seventy. The next ten years of his life were
turned to good account. He must have been a
diligent student, for a part of this time at least,
for at twenty-two he passed the severe examina
tion which admitted him to the I'ruisian service
with the rank of second lieutenant. The corps
to which he was attached was the eighth regi
ment of infantry, then stationed at Frankfort-on-the-Oder,
and commanded by General vdn Mar
wick, whose wife was by birth a Countess von
It was fortunate for the youthful officer, who
was the youngest second lieutenant in the regi
ment, that he had influential friends at head
quarters, for, as his parents had lost almost nil
their properly, he was wholly dependent on his
slender pay. This was the more aggravating, as
he wislied to obtain instruction in the modern
languages, for the acquisition of which he had
peculiar aptitude. By rigid economy he contrived
to save enough for this purpose, and was so suc
cessful in bis studies that he soon became distin
guished as a linguist. This proficiency did not,
however, diminish the taciturnity which lias al
ways been one of his striking characteristics, and
has gained for him the humorous distinction of
being silent in eight languages. His diligence
was rewarded by the appointment of Director of
the School of Division, and his successful man-,
ageinent of lliis somewhat insubordinate body
led to his being placed on the commission for
topographical surveys in Silesia and. elsewhere,
under that able and genial officer, Gencreal von
Muffling. Not long afterwards, he was promoted
to the rank of captain, and'in two years became
a member of the general Staff.
His next Ecene of action was in the East,
where he traveled, in 1835 j and, at the request
of Sultan Mahmoud, prepared plans of important
places on the Danube, and organize i the Turkish
army on the Prussian .model. One fruit of this
absence was bis historical worl, "The TurcO'
Ku-sian Expedition, 1828-9 ;" which, though de
predated by its author, has been highly com
mended by competent critics. Iranng bis visit
to the East, where he passed four'laborious years,
he explored Asia Minor on. horseback, observing
with the keen eye of the strategist the prominent
features of the country, being the first military
observer who had examined this region since
Xenophon passed through it on bis memorable
Itetreat with the Ten Thousand. Escaping death
by murder, which had overtaken other European
explorers. Von Moltke was spared for grander
destinies. His sketches of notable places in this
region were highly appreciated by Bitter, the
great German geographer, who compared them
with the accounts of tbe campaigns of Alexander,
the travels of Marco Polo, and the Crusades.
In 183'J, he returned to Europe,' and, not long
after receiving his major's commission in the 4th
corps el'armee, was married to MiS3 Bart, of
Holstein. Five years later be was appointed
aide-de-camp to Prince Henry, of Prussia, node
of the present King, with whom he resided in
Romn, where that unfortunate scion of the Ho-
henzollerns soon after died, havine been for years
a hopeless invalid. After bringing back Prince
Heinricb's dead body to Prussia, Moltke rapidly
rose in the scale of promotion, being inadn chief
of the general staff of the 4th army corps in
Magdeburg, where be was ordered in tbe stormy
days of '48; lieutenant-colonel in 1856; and
lieutenant-general in 1859. In this year, he was
appointed aide-de-camp to the Crown Prince,
whom be accompanied to Balmoral on the occa
sion of bis marriage with the Princess Royal.
His second visit to England with the Crown
Prince was in December, 1861, when be attended
the funeral of the bride's father, the lamented
husband of Victoria.
When old Field-Marshal Wrangel retired from
the command of the Jinny, after tbe storming of
Dnppel, in 1864, ' Prince Frederick Charles, his
saccessor, made Moltke Unlet or tbe general
Staff, and to hyn were the PriJan3 Indebted for
tbe strategic movements wIm h tnlminated in the
capture of Alsen and the occupation of Jutland.
The Danish war opened the eyes of his country
men, though few discerned the powers which
have since gained for him the' title of the first
strategist in Europe.
The breaking out of the Aostriaa war soon
afforded him an opportunity of eXWfeiting, his
mastery of grand tactics. Intrusted wfth' the
chief direction of the -campaign', it was-by hi,
skillful coriiBIiations-' that " tira - thread Pra6iaB
is, sUrUeg froffi' widely efferent pokte, asd
moving with astonishing rapidity, overwhelmed
tbe forces of Marshal Benedek on the field of
Sadowa. This battle was noticeable as being the
first in which he appeared in front of tbe armies,
being usually seated at bis desk in the rear, where,
by means of'thq field telegraph and his excellent
maps, he realized the exact position of the con-
tending forces, and flashed his orders to the
Prussian generals with lightning rapidity. Such
was the ability which he displayed in the conduct
of this campaign that in seven weeks the Aus
trian hosts wen! overthrown, and the road to
Vienna lay open to his conquering legions. Na
poleon, too, was overawed by. their unexpected
success, and may well bjive read the doom of his
dynasty in the triumphs of the silent chief.
At the splendid fetes of the 20th and 21st of
September, in honor of tho successful termina
tion of the war, the victorious armies, preceded"
by the representatives of foreign powers, marched
with drams beating and colors flying through the
Brandenburg Gate of Berlin, to the grand square
in front of the royal palace, where they passed in
review before the sovereign. It was observed as
a curious coincidence, that while King William,
took his place in front of the statue of Blucher,
with his staff around him, Von Moltke was acci
dentally placed beside the statue of Gneisenau,
the Prussian chief-of-staff in the War of Inde
pendence. In tokeu of appreciation of his inestimable
services, the King conferred on tbe great soldiei.
the Order of the Black Eagle, the highest hogor
in his gift. But grander achievements were in
store for him. The invasion of Napoleon found
him thoroughly prepared. As the -agercssive
tendencies of the Empire had been scanned by
tbe vigilant eye of Bismarck, so its warlike pow
ers were accurately gauged by Moltke. That he
clearly apprehended the defects of its military
system was manifest in his remark to a French
officer who visited him in Be.lin, not long before
tho war : " Do not talk to me of your military
education in Africa. If yon have never been
there so much the better ; when yon become a
General, you will bo glad of it. Tho war you
have been carrying on against the Arabs for
forty years is gueiittnrie of an inferior order.
With that school you' will do no moro than form
other schools like It. The first great war will
demonstrate your inefficiency." Among the im
perial correspondence recently discovered at the
Tiuleries, is"a dispatch from a French captain to
the Minister of War at Paris, date'd Forbach,
April 9th, 1868, informing him that an old Prus
sian soldier was then visiting the frontiers of
France, carefully studying its strategic points,
and, in spite of bad weather, mounting the heights
commanding tte surrounding country. " Is it
necessary to follow him ?" telegraphed the officer.
Tho reply flashed over the wires was : ' Follow
him." The iudefatigable old soldier, whose pene
tration nothing escaped, and who was followed in
vain, was no less u personage than Von Moltke.
It is said that when first informed of the declara
tion of war by Franco against Prussia, ho pointed
to his cabinet and remarked to bis secretary :
"Third drawer to the right 1" Tho secretary
opened it, and took out a mass of manuscripts,
which proved to be Von Mollke's plan for the
invasion of France, prepared three years ago.
History has no more impressive lesson than is
afforded by the fate uf Napoleon and his armies
when within tho iron clntch of the great Prussian
strategist. It recalls the noble lines in which
Byion depicted the overthrow of Xerxes. In a
mouth from the time when the Prince Imperial
received his baptism of fire at Saarbruck tbe
very place where more than two years before the
movements of Moltke had been watcbed by the
anxions t rench captain the Empire was crushed
at Sedan ; and its only remaining army, shattered
in many a hard fight, was driven to its doom
within the fortifications of Metz. Indeed, the
battle of Gravelolte, two weeks before, clearly,
foreshadowed the final issue. On that beautiful
August morning, the sun rose over the peaceful
valley, unconscious in its serene loveliness of the
carnage that would redden it before tbe day was
over. At nBoti, Moltke stood on the hill over
looking the battle-field, waiting for tbo success of
the combinations he bad formed. Around him
were Bismarck, tbe Richelien,and Boon, tbe Car
not of Prussia; while the grand old King, (the
chivalrous absolutist who "Imilded better than
he know,") with Prince Frederick Charles, and
our own Sheridan, watched with intense interest
the progress of tho hard-fought contest. Their
suspense was relieved after nightfall by the ar
rival of Steinmetz ; who, in accordance with
Moltke's plans, struck the right Sank of Bazaine's
army, as, four- years before, Prince Frederick
Charles assaulted the right of Benedek at Sado
wa, and as Blucher swept in upon the French at
Throughout the war, the conduct of the Prus
sian troops has vindicated the merits of tbe
system steadily upheld by Von Moltke, which,
instead of a national army, sends an armed na
tion into battle. The Algerian guerillas, the
holiday soldiers of tbe Empire, were powerless
against the thinking bayonets that drove before
them tbe belmeted cuirassiers' of France. St.
Cyr went down before Tubingen, and the Imperial
Guard, the veterans of Magenta and Solferino,
fell back before tbe onset of German scholarship
and culture. Bat even this splendid material
would have been wasted in the hands of incom
petent commanders, as surely as tbe French
forces could never have been so speedily over
thrown under Davoust or Massena as in the man
agement of those military incapables, the Mar
shals of the Second Empire.. Nor is the fame of
the Prussian strategist lessened by modern im
provements in tbe art of war, fort he skill required
to master their complications, and provide against
their multifarious cootingencies,is proportionately
greater. Difficult as it is to handle a large body
of troops on tbe field of battle, it is infinitely
more difficult to direct the operations of great
armies from the cabinet. - Talent can accomplish
the one ; only genias can perform the other. The
mere tactician may be formed by practice'; bat
the stnttegistrdike.the poet, is born, nor made.
In tbe last analysis, Von Moltke, so far from
being a man of war, is emphatically a man of
peace. His thoughtful reticence is ef happier
augor.lhan the blatant utterances of tfeege pro
fessed peacemakers who. provoke tbe scoarge
which tney condemn. W hat Palef said of tfc .

The French aad German Iues.
Th? successes lately won by the Preach, slight
as they ere, can not be, claimed as the achieve
ment of tho French army organized by. the late
Emperor, and his Algerine and Mexican Gen
erals. Mgre than three-fourths of that, army
have already been killed, wounded, or captured
by the Germans. A correspondent of the Worli
gives the number of regular Fibtroops last
juiy.as -wu.uuo.and rays that 286,700 have been
captured, while the, losses by death. in action, and
in hospital by wounds and' sickness, ha- been
81,300 men. which makes a total ofa3G7,0O0.
There remain of the 430,000 only 63,000 men ;
of these 50,000 are with Trochn in Paris undine
others are with Gen. Aurclles on' the Loiro. Be
sides this loss in men, France has had takes
from her since the war began more than 3,500
cannon and 35,000 horses. But the heaviest
loss is to replace the trained officers ; for, op to
this period of the war, France has been deprived
of near 10,000 of her officers. Up to the capitu
lation of Metz the number of French officers un
wounded and prisoners in Germany or on parole
was 3,557. The surrender of Bazalne included
over 6,000 officers. The number of non-commis
sioned officers who are now prisoners is about
30.000 and this is a loss, almost impostible to
repair. Everything else there i3 rjenty of; therjj
are a million men with arms ; every sl ip that
touches the shores of France comes laden with
rifles, cannon and amunilion ; there is nj lack of
money ; there is no deficiency in braverjrj patriot
ism -and devotion. But without the officers to
drill, instruct and discipline this million of men,
it cannot be a match for tho smaller bat better
drilled forces of Germany.
The present strength of the German armies is
variously stated. A Berlin account says there
are now in Fradce 856,000 German soldiers, of
whom 740.000 are froui Prussia and the North
German Confederation, the remaining 116,000
belonging Jo the South German States. If the
German army corps and divisions now in France
were full if every regiment, battalion and divi
sion numbered the full quota of men which its
paper organization calls for there would be 856,
000 German eoldiers in French territory. Bat
as it happens that many of the battalions havo
been reduced, notwithstanding the constant rein
forcements that have gone forward to fill np the
gaps made in theip ranks by death in battle,
death by wounds, death by sickness, and deple
tion by tho crippled men sent home, to as few as
500 men ; as it happens that many of the divi-
, sion.i number but 9,000 or 10,000 men, instead ot
15,000, and that many of the corps have but 18,
000 or 20,000 effectives, instead" or the full quota
of 30,000, a very large deduction mast be mado
from the figures of the official statement. The
whole number of Germans now in France does
not exceed 550,000. Half this difference of 306,
000 men represents tbe losses that Germany has
sustained in the war. tbns far her losses in bat
tle, in hospital, and in wounded and crippled men
who have not died, bat who have been rendered
useless by the loss of their limbs or tbe destruct
ion of their health.
A FrencbJonrnal, tho Pnyj, sums np the
money losses of France fiom tbe beginning of
the war until this time as follows: .War arma
ments from 1868 to 1870, 10,000,000 ; fortifica
tions destroyed, which will have to bo rebuilt,
X60.000.000; losses of muskets, camon, and oth
er war material destroyed or captured, 60,000,-.
000 ; destruction of buildings and fields by both
sides, 80,000,000 ; total, -160,000,000, or S2,
500,000,000. The whole amount expended in
the war by both powers is hardly known ; 200,
000,000 has beet) mentioned, bat that. Prof.
Levi, an eminent English statistician, thinks a low
estimate. In all probability 50,000.000 will not
cover tbe direct military expenditure of Germany.
Tbe indirect losses are heavy. He takes the num
ber of killed and wounded at 100,000 men, tho
capitalized valae of each man comes to 564, say
600, or for 100,000 men 60,000,000. Bat tbo"
income of tbe laborers represents only, a third, at
most, of the property produced, and the 60,000.
000 loss by the individuals killed and wounded
really represents 180.000,000 loss to tbe nation.
To (his be add3 the Ios3 suffered from tho com
plete distraction of tbe mind of the nation from
all kinds of useful occupation, This he puts
down at 20,000,000. Farther, there are the,
losses of trade and navigation, which he calcu
lates at least at 20,000,000. In round numbers,
therefore, Germany is, he thinks, entitled to
claim from France nearly 300,000,000, ot some
thing mora than 1,500,000,000.
