Overview

Gathered from national and state archives, newspapers, and private collections, The German Century A Photographic History by Michael St�rmer is a stunning collection of photographs that capture the tumultuous history of Europe's most ambitious country-Germany.

Michael St�rmer, who has been a professor of History at the University of ErlangenN�rnberg since 1973, narrates the spectacular story of Germany beginning with the defeat of France in 1870 and ending with the aftermath of one of Germany's greatest events, the coming down of the Berlin Wall in 1990. Along with the amazing pictures you can choose from, like a roomful of World War I Allied officers standing on every table and chair, craning their necks to watch the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, or the stately portraits of Theodor Fontane, Lou Andreas-Salom�, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Rainer Maria Rilke, or even the haunting photo of Adolf Hitler leading the Nazi pageantry through the streets of Munich in 1936, Professor St�rmer's acute analysis also provides a vivid record of both the ordinary life and momentous events in the incredible story that is The German Century.
