Before 1871, Germany was not a nation but an idea. Its founder,
Otto von Bismarck, had a formidable task at hand. How would he
bring thirty-nine individual states under the yoke of a single
Kaiser? Could the young European nation build enough power to rival
the empires of Britain and France? In a unique study of five
decades that changed the course of modern history, Katja Hoyer
tells the story of the German Empire from its violent beginnings to
its defeat in the First World War, a dramatic tale of realpolitik,
national self-discovery and social upheaval that ended, as it
started, in blood and iron.
