The Ten Week's War was a European conflict which halted nationalist ambitions in Central and Southern Europe for nearly thirty years. Austria and her allies had long stood as the main obstacle to the unification of Germany and Italy, and fearing the power of Austria's ally, Russia, Prussia and Sardinia conspired to strike together, along with Napoleon III's France, still smarting from its defeat during the Danubian War. Their plan, however failed miserably: the Austro-Russian armies smashed the Prussians at Sadowa, the Sardinian army proved utterly incapable, and the French, forced to divide their slow to mobilize forces on two fronts, failed on both fronts. The war, the latest in a string of foreign policy defeats, humiliated Napoleon III, leading to his overthrow shortly afterwards. Britain's pride also suffered, and the collective shame at 'abandoning' France pushed Britain into turning World War One from a Korean conflict to a global one.
