Germany lies at the heart of Europe.
Its leaders from Charlemagne to Frederick the Great, from Martin Luther to Otto van Bismarck, have shaped the world’s history.
Yet despite the fact that it has had such a major impact on history Germany as a unified nation did not exist until late in the nineteenth century.
So how did this loose collection of states continue to shape history for hundreds of years?
Ernest F. Henderson’s brilliant two volumes uncovers the fascinating past of the German peoples, from the moment it repelled the might of Roman legions through to the moment that it was eventually unified as the German Empire in 1871.
Henderson provides vivid details of all the major figures and events that occurred throughout these eighteen hundred years from the various wars and invasions that took place, to the religious strife that uprooted centuries old tradition, to the monumental impact that some leaders had upon these lands.
Henderson draws upon a large variety of rich source material to provide fascinating insight into this remarkable nation and explain how what we now know as Germany was formed.
Although the title of this book is A Short History of Germany Henderson leaves no stone unturned in his two-volume account of the German people. The book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to learn more about this extraordinary nation and how it has influenced the history of the world for centuries.
