The Guardian This is an austere and thoughtful book ... Steinberg has given us a major biography.
The Sunday Times Otto von Bismarck became the dominant figure of his era and, as this rich and readable biography shows, had an almost uncanny sense of power. Steinberg's portrait is very much warts and all.
Abigail Green, European History Quarterly Jonathan Steinbergs new biography of Bismarck has been widely acclaimed, and rightly so. I read a lot of German history, and this is the most enjoyable German history book I have read in years. As a deeply researched but accessible guide to the life of one of nineteenth-century Europes most compelling and significant political figures, it stands head and shoulders above other Bismarck biographies.
