KAISER BILL., Garrett, Richard.

Author Name    Garrett, Richard.

Title   KAISER BILL.

Publisher    Wayland, (Hove, 1978), first edition.

Seller ID   16428

96 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated in b&w with photographs, reproductions, map. "Commonly blamed as the man who started World War I, Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany is often seen as a tough aggressor; a man, as Bismarck might have said, 'of blood and iron'. As leader of the world's strongest army, he wielded great power. When, at the beginning of this century, he built up an almost equally strong navy, it seemed as if nothing could stop Germany's advances. But was he really the strong man of popular legend? Richard Garrett argues that, behind the stern appearance and the flamboyant moustache, Kaiser Bill was a failure. He believed that God had appointed him Emperor of Germany and that God would tell him what to do. His talent for making enemies was enormous. He had grown up as a spoilt child with a wide knowledge of many things and a deep understanding of almost nothing; and yet his arrogant faith in himself never faltered. This is the story of the effect of one man on thirty years of world history, culminating in a monstrous clash of arms and ending in the quietness of exile. Out of the story a picture of the real man emerges, and the events which led up to the disaster are put in to their true perspective. Was it the Kaiser, more than anyone else, who unwittingly prepared the way for Hitler? This book may suggest an answer." Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling, very light browning, small corner crease on front flap. VG+/VG
