Karl Marx and Fredrick Engels attentatively followed the economic and political developments of their time. This also included the conficts between Denmark and Germany over the Schleswig-Holstein question and the resultant war in 1864. Little was published by them on this issue but they did discuss the conflict in their private correspondance. Their assessments as to the causes and course of the conflict in 1864 mirror some of the central themes in the Marxist societal analysis, namely an understanding of the issues of national liberation, national identity and the great power context for social revolution.
