1848 was a turbulent but momentous time in Europe. Within this context, the Duchies of Schleswig and Holstein were caught between the rising nationalism and desire for unification of the Prussian/German nation states and the traditional alliances with the Danish Kingdom. The Schleswig Holsteiners decided that allegiance with the German Federation, including possessing their own constitution, was the best way forward. They rebelled against the Danish and looked to the Prussians with their greater military prowess for help. In Denmark, as in other European countries, the call for a democratic constitution caused social disturbance, triggered initially by the February riots in Paris. The Danish monarchy, in crisis, both constitutionally and in terms of monarchical succession continued to lay claim on their southernmost duchies and sent their armed forces to destroy the Schleswig-Holstein insurgents. The author describes the battles and battlefields upon which this crisis was played out: from the first major action at Bov (9 April, 1848) to the last major battles of the war, at Isted (25 July 1850) and Missunde (12 September 1850), from the geomorphic landscape influencing battlefield strategy down to the description of a farmhouse where Prussian officers jumped out of windows to save themselves from the Danish.

In the nineteenth century, the hotly disputed border region between Denmark and Germany was the focus of an intricate conflict that complicates questions of ethnic and national identity even today. Beyond the Border reconstructs the experiences of both Danish and German minority youths living in the area from the 1950s to the 1970s, a period in which relations remained tense amid the broader developments of Cold War geopolitics. Drawing on a remarkable variety of archival and oral sources, the author provides a rich and fine-grained analysis that encompasses political issues from the NATO alliance and European integration to everyday life and popular culture.

King Erik VII of Pomerania (1382 -1459) ruled over a vast area, the Nordic Union, which included the kingdoms of Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Norway, Iceland and Greenland. The union was later named the Kalmar Union. Erik of Pomerania conducted two wars for the quest of the duchy Schleswig against the Holstein Counts. He was not successful and in the end the nobilities in his countries expelled him. The book is for the readers interested in medieval history and the conflicts of that time. Literature about the contemporary European rivalries is extensive especially the -100 Years War- but when it comes to the conflicts of the Scandinavian countries, books in English are more limited. In many aspects the Scandinavian conflicts are similar to the rivalry between England and France. This book will remedy some of this shortage.
