"It is a study of Bismarck as one of the Makers of Modern Europe and of the German nation and Empire" Otto von Bismarck, born to a wealthy family in Schoenhausen on April 1, 1815, is recognized as the founder of the German Empire. After his death, German nationalists would erect hundreds of monuments memorializing his strong leadership style, while many historians would praise him for his moderate approach to the unification process. This biography, one of the first works written by esteemed historian Sir Charles Grant Robertson, presents an in-depth look at the many facets of the man who united Germany "by iron and blood". Here is Bismarck the military strategist, the master of foreign affairs and equally importantly, the major force in social and economic reform. This book was originally published as part of the series, "The Makers of the Nineteenth Century", by Henry Holt & Company in 1919.
