Two German Giants by John Lord
These portraits of Frederick the Great and Otto Von Bismarck, the two great architects of the Prussian empire were written by a Christian who clearly identifies the spiritual abyss at the heart of Prussian nationalism. He cannot help but admire the courage and brilliance of these leaders while remaining skeptical that German pragmatism, so admired by western leaders of the 19th century, was at heart atheistic. A fawning essay, written a contemporary admirer of Bismarck, and a well-known speech Bismarck gave to the Reichstag provide additional perspectives.
