About the Author

John C. G. Röhl is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Sussex. His many previous publications include The Kaiser and his Court (1994) which was awarded the Wolfson History Prize as well as the two previous volumes of his biography of Kaiser Wilhelm II - Young Wilhelm: The Kaiser's Early Life, 1859-1888 (Cambridge University Press, 1998) and Wilhelm II: The Kaiser's Personal Monarchy, 1888-1900 (Cambridge University Press, 2004), which have won the Einhard Prize for the biography of a major European figure in 2012.


"This ranks as one of the greatest political biographies of our time. Superb, important, magisterial - sometimes even hilarious and as compellingly fascinating as it is academically definitive."
Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Stalin: The Court of the Red Tsar
'A brief summary of Rohl's mighty three volume biography.' Sunday Times
'In this powerful portrait Rohl reveals the monstrosity of the man behind the posturing monarch.' The Times
'Rohl's scholarship and authority still shine through the pacey narrative. And what a devastating portrait it is.' The Economist
'The sharp, distinctly unflattering portrait of the Kaiser which emerges from this brilliant short book is the more convincing because of the scrupulous fairness with which John Rohl has treated his unappealing subject and the extraordinary circumstances that shaped him.' Lord Lexden, House
'... a concise examination of the life, character, and actions of the Kaiser. ... This is certainly the best one-volume treatment of the Kaiser.' NYMAS Review
