Product Details


“A concise, richly descriptive, and authoritative history.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A brief yet thorough introduction to an episode of German history that has proven pivotal . . . over the past century and a half. . . . Stürmer’s superlative analysis of Bismarck the man, of his motives and actions, is a masterpiece of clarity and brevity.” —Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Clear, concise, and compelling—a welcome corrective to the view that a principle task of historiography is to assign blame.” —Kirkus Reviews

“[A] concise, information-packed history of imperial Germany, from its creation in 1870 to its collapse in the aftermath of World War I, that makes one acutely aware of what-might-have-beens.” —Forbes
