      Christopher Clark wrote a balanced and well-researched book on the reign of Kaiser Wilhelm II. Clark's view is that Wilhelm was weak, disorganized and impetuous, but not the militaristic warmonger he has been accused of being. In particular he argues that Wilhelm was not responsible for starting World War I, a charge that has been laid at his feet. A well-written analysis.

      Excellent and very much an appendage to 'The Iron Kingdom'.

    • James Folan says:

      The author is skilled in writing histories that are both comprehensive and accessible to the non-specialist.

      beautiful, to see the man for what he truly was, objectively, a century after the tragedy of his life. surreal.

    • Lucardus says:

      Keine Biographie, wie man annehmen könnte, sondern eine Analyse der Persönlichkeit Wilhelms II. und deren Wechselwirkung mit der Politik und der Gesellschaft Deutschlands während seiner Herrschaft. Angenehm unpolemisch und ausgewogen, weder Verteufelung noch Verherrlichung. Wer vorher nichts über diese Epoche gelesen hat, sollte sich überlegen, zuvor ein anderes Buch (oder z. B. eine passende Ausgabe der Geo-Epoche) über die Geschichte Deutschlands in den Jahren 1871 bis 1918 zu lesen. And [...]

      The title of this would indicate a biography, but it’s much more a narrative history and analysis of how the Wilhelmine political system functioned. The Kaiser was less in charge than the system, and that in turn didn’t really work very well. Clark is an excellent historian and this is a very fine book.

      Fascinating; interesting to see how 1 man can set up a country for such disasters that affect the whole world.
