Cover of: Bismarck. -- | Robertson, Charles Grant, Sir, 1869-1948.

About the Book

“Comprehensive, unbiased, and compiled from original sources, it describes the man and master statesman, loyal to craftiness in his support of the king, ending with a bitter old age of defeated power and reconstructed ideas. Many references to contemporary German history, documents and bibliography.”
— A.L.A. Catalog 1926
“Mr Robertson has written so sanely and dispassionately that the salient impression that comes out of this biography is not of Bismarck’s meanness but of greatness. This Mr Robertson has accomplished by adhering resolutely to his avowed object in writing; namely, to reconstruct the period through which Bismarck lived.”
– The Book Review Digest
“Both historically and psychologically, it is a work often brilliant, always enlightening; written neither from the professorial chair nor the journalistic desk, but instinct with a full and inner knowledge both of documents and transactions.”
– Standard Catalog for Public Libraries: Biography Section (1927)
