No ruler has ever been so lauded and reviled by the British
public as Queen Victoria's grandson,Kaiser William II.His birth in Berlin in 1859 was welcomed in London as though he were British rather than a Prussian prince;and as he grew older,the Queen granted him a succession of unprecedented titles and honours.But by 1915 he had become the most hated man in Britain,and for many people the catastrophe of 1914-18 remains 'The Kaiser's War'.
Alan Palmer examines the Anglo-German background to William's life and reign,and emphasizes his changing attitudes towards Britain - a country he both admired and resented.In particular he throws new light on the clash of imperialism in the 1890's, the Kaiser's visit in 1907 and on

Frederick the Great (1712-86),King of Prussia,was one of the most interesting and successful monarchs of all time,and yet few kings have remained so elusive.From his austere,unhappy childhood,when he was frequently beaten viciously by his boorish father,to the archetypal Philosopher-King which he became,excelling in wisdom,cultivating the arts,practising diplomacy,and waging warfare with equal brilliance,there are many questions which need to be answered.How did Frederick play off his greedy and grasping neighbours,so as to set them against each other? How was it that,in the course of his reign,he welded the fragmented little state of Prussia into one of the most formidable powers of Europe,thus laying the… Read more
