Well written; very interesting. This is the third book I have read on the life of Wilhelm II. By far this one is the best. It goes into more depth of the characters and circumstances of his life. The author also does a great job of analyzing the consequences and impact his upbringing had on his personality. Interestingly, his parents in trying to give him a Liberal, pro-English outlook actually created in him a very conservative view and a rather anti-English attitude. This reverse result was the outcome of choosing his tutor, Georg Hinzpeter. It seems Hinzpeter created the exact opposite of what the Crown Prince and Victoria desired.

If you are interested in a biography of Wilhelm II, this is the one to rerad. ( )
