Hi all im studying German Unification A Level history with the National Extension College. Haven't done coursework or studying for about 9 years and asking for a lil help on this question.

To what extent did economic factors drive the process of unification in Germany in the years 1848 – 66?

so far i have put things down in bullet points and i've got this so far.

German revolutions of 1848, Germany drafts up propositions for a political and economic union known as the Kleindeutschland. This was to achieve German unification without Austrian support and was favoured by Prussia.

The Zollverein included the vast majority of the German states; the trade union was to improve economy between the German states, to be used as a political tool against Austrian influence over the German states and to strengthen Germany against potential French aggression.

Prussian economy grew due to the Zollverein; this gave Prussia the power and strength to declare war against Austria.

The Zollverein helped German unification with the Prussian- Austria War of 1866 with Austria losing the war and losing all influence over the German states.

Any other important things have i missed? all help woul be greatly appreciated.
