This is a fascinating compendium of accounts covering every stage of Otto von Bismarck's life. Out of these pages Bismarck emerges as a titanic figure. From his bombastic youth as a Prince of Roisterers to his days of retirement, hurling angry thunderbolts at his chief tormentor, Kaiser William II, the irrepressible Chancellor is seen in all his moods as a multi-faceted, paradoxical personality - the gargantuan eater and drinker, the classic hater, the devoted family man, the neurasthenic hypochondriac.The author has expertly interwoven the raw material of biography and history with introductory notes.Illustrated with B&W photographs.
