Accessible European History
If you are looking for a quick and easy sourse for German (Centeral European) history, this is your book. Very neatly put together, the book focuses only on the major themes of German history. From the numerous Tuetonic tribes of the Rhine, and their development as the Holy Roman Empire, to the Prussian and Austrian peoples fight for predominance in the German Empire. Hagan Shulze takes you through the Weimar Republic's troubled years under Bismarck, and overviews German meglomania under Hitler. Shulze ends his history with a brief discussion of the Post War-Cold War years under Konrad Adenhauer, Willie Brandt and Helmut Kohl. A brisk look at Germany for the casual reader, but not recommended for the avid historian. Still, a pleasent read.
