“Otto von Bismarck. The Iron Chancellor of the German Imperial Reich and the Creative Destroyer of Twentieth Century Europe”

It was said his powerful personality commanded and disarmed both supporters and opponents for nearly four decades. He lied all his life, moving between truth and lies with consummate ease. He could be kind and cruel, emotional and cold, sensitive and heartless, honest and devious. He had stupendous intellectual powers, a great capacity for work behind a deceptive facade of laziness and from 1862 he was Chancellor of Prussia and from 1871 until 1890, Chancellor of the unified Imperial German Second Reich. Three successful European wars allowed his creation the German Reich. He facilitated a unified Italy and the erstwhile Ottoman Balkan provinces becoming nation states. He re-shaped central Europe and the Balkans such that his policies of creative destruction moulded the course of European history beyond 1945.
