Count Helmuth von Moltke (1800-1891), also known as “Moltke the Elder”, served as General Chief of Staff of the Prussian Army from 1858 until his resignation in 1888, from which position he planned and executed successful wars of unification against Denmark, Austria and France, leading to the formation of the modern German state.
Otto von Bismarck (1815-98), known as the “Iron Chancellor”, is generally acknowledged as having been the prime mover in unifying the German states under a single ruler (Wilhelm I), and in the rise of Germany as a great European power.
