Rezension bezieht sich auf: Iron Kingdom: The Rise and Downfall of Prussia, 1600-1947 (Taschenbuch)
Its a long read, but its full with wonderful facts, great analysis, excellent attention to detail and a thorough understanding of the powers that shaped and in the end, destroyed Prussia.
If you are looking for a casual book on Prussian history, then find another book. This is a complete study of cultural, religion, political, military, geographical, economical and industrial aspects of prussia for about 500 years. Its takes time to read, but its rewarding. The book explains to the detail great events like the napoleonic wars, and then goes to a personal level to show you what happened in the King's court, or the Generals' meetings.
Also recomendable, "Diplomacy" by Kissinger, it has a couple of chapters on Bismarck and the Emperor, plus other chapters that help to understand the decisions and attitudes from european statesmen that influenced Prussia, such as Richelieu, Metternich and Napoleon III.
its a great book, kudos to Christopher Clark for an amazing job on gathering so much information.
