The Seven Weeks' War (Austro-Prussian War Of 1866) Image Collection

Watermarked PDF

A Matomaton image collection for wargamers.

Forty-four colour images of the key battles and officers of the Seven Weeks' War, also known as the Unification War, the Prussian–German War, the German Civil War and the Austro-Prussian War of 1866.


This collection includes two PDFs, one in portrait and one in landscape.

Each PDF contains the following pages:

-- One (landscape) or two (portrait) pages for the cover and legalese.

-- Twenty-nine (landscape) and fifteen (portrait) images. The former one image per page, the latter one or two images per page.

Also Available

For detailed illustrations of the Austrian and Prussian armies of this period, please see my Military Uniforms Reference Collections.  A collection of maps of the key areas of this conflict is available as well.

About These Images

This PDF collection contains high resolution scans of the actually pages from contemporary illustrated accounts of the war. They have been cleaned and corrected unless doing so would affect the clarity of the images themselves.

About Matomaton

I've long been fascinated by military history and key European conflicts. This brief but significant war saw a shift in power that would lead to German unification and hence shape Europe's future for many years to come.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
