The Planning of the War Ever since Germany had inflicted defeat upon France in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71, the major nations of Europe had busied themselves with plans for the next war, seen by many as inevitable given the conflicting ambitions of the major powers; which, in the case of France, included the repossession of Alsace and Lorraine, both lost to Germany as a consequence of the Franco-Prussian War.

What is Your Deepest Communication Value? Welcome to our blog, “Words Can Change Your Brain.” With each post, we’ll present some of the most recent neuroscientific and neuropsychological findings on how the brain processes language and how we can use this knowledge to improve the way we speak and listen to others.
