Moltke's his main thesis was that military strategy had to be understood as a system of options since only the beginning of a military operation was plannable.
Moltke's plan was to assemble the whole army south of Mainz, this being one district in which a single army could secure the defence of the whole frontier.
Moltke expected that the French would be compelled by the direction of their railways to collect the greater part of their army near Metz, and a smaller portion near Strassburg.

He was born in Mecklenburg-Schwerin and named for his uncle, Helmuth Karl Bernhard von Moltke, future Field Marshal and hero of the Wars of Unification.
Moltke's planning was based on a two-front war against France and Russia, and predicated upon the army in the West (still vastly stronger than the army in the East), gaining a quick decision against the French so that troops could be shifted to meet the Russian threat.
Moltke's health continued to deteriorate and he died in Berlin on June 18, 1916.

After the peace, the Prussian government voted Moltke the sum of 30,000 marks, with which he bought the estate of Creisau, near Schweidnitz in Silesia (modern-day Świdnica, Poland).
Moltke again planned and led the Prussian armies in the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871), which paved the way for the creation of the Prussian-led German Empire in 1871.
It is certainly true that Moltke was given a great army to work with thanks to the efforts of war minister Albrecht von Roon, and he was given nearly ideal situations to fight in, thanks to the brilliant diplomacy of Otto von Bismarck.

 Helmuth von Moltke the Elder:
A disciple of Clausewitz, whose theory of war was more an effort to grasp its essential nature, than of Jomini, who expounded a system of rules, Moltke regarded strategy as a practical art of adapting means to ends, and had developed the methods of Napoleon in accordance with altered conditions of his age.
The Austrians under Ludwig von Benedek marched faster than Moltke expected, and might have opposed the crown prince with four or five corps; but Benedek's attention was centred on Prince Frederick, and his four corps, not under a common command, were beaten in detail.
After the peace, the Prussian government voted Moltke the sum of 30,000 marks, with which he bought the estate of Creisau, near Schweidnitz in Silesia (modern-day Świdnica, (modern-day Poland).

 Ludwig Schwamb and Nazi Germany
Ludwig Schwamb was a senior member of the Landsmannschaft (fraternity) during his studies to become a lawyer in Mainz.
Ludwig, my cousin, fled to Frankfort after he heard that Hitler was alive, and he was captured there by the Gestapo and taken to prison in Berlin along with his wife, on July 23, three days after the explosion.
Ludwig Schwamb was held in the concentration camp until January 23, 1945 when he received from Roland Freisler the words, “Ludwig Schwamb - Tod.” He was hung like the others that same afternoon.

From Coblenz the enfeebled 66-year-old Helmuth von Moltke was blunderingly sending into operation the cherished plan for offensive battle drawn up years previously by Count Alfred von Schlieffen, for fifteen years chief of staff and mentor of Von Moltke.
Old Von Moltke blundered; Von Kluck deviated from objectives outlined for his forces in the Schlieffen Plan; from Paris there rolled out 1,100 coughing, rickety taxicabs filled with chattering poilus under Galliéni, and the break-through to the French capital never came to pass.
Von Moltke was ousted in December of 1914; his place was taken by Erich von Falkenhayn, who in a memorandum to the Kaiser in the following December wrote: "There was no sort of imprudence in risking the hostility of America.

Helmuth Johann Ludwig von Moltke (May 25 1848 – June 18 1916), also known as Moltke the Younger, was a nephew of Generalfeldmarschall Helmuth Karl Bernhard von Moltke and served as the German General Staff from 1906 to 1914.
Critics from the so-called "Schlieffen School" argue that Moltke took his predecessor's plan (the " Schlieffen Plan "), modified it without understanding it, and failed to execute it properly during the World War I, thus dooming German efforts.
A number of historians, notably Zuber and S.L.A. Marshall, contend that the failure of Alexander von Kluck 's First Army to keep position with Karl von Bülow 's Second Army, thus creating a gap near Paris that was exploited by the French, is a more direct cause than any planning foibles on Moltke's part.

Incidentally, Von Moltke's plan for the opening maneuvers of World War I was left to his nephew Helmuth Johann Ludwig von Moltke.

This method, as we shall see, was developed in large part to overcome various problems Lenbach began to have with the traditional practice of posing the sitter in the studio.
In the case of prominent sitters like Otto von Bismarck or Helmuth Graf von Moltke, who were accustomed to being photographed, he did not disguise the photography.

A weakening of the Schlieffen Plan by the German Chief of General Staff, General Helmuth Johann Ludwig von Moltke, who transferred some of the designated troops to the Eastern Front and the Franco-German border, and the usual unanticipated developments and miscalculations, meant the initial blow was weaker and slower than planned.
Towards the end of 1917, and into the months of January and February 1918, the Germans, under the command of General Erich von Ludendorff, had been amassing and training a special force for a new offensive.
It comprised of opportunistic stormtroopers, elite assault units, and specialist artillery and mortar batteries, all led from the front by well-trained and experienced NCO’s.
