Review

A magisterial history of Europe's only extinct power, nuanced, dispassionate and utterly gripping' -- Financial Times

`A terrific book ... the definitive history of this much-maligned state' -- Daily Telegraph Books of the Year

`Exemplary ... an illuminating, profoundly satisfying work of history' -- The New York Times

`The best history of Prussia in any language' -- Sunday Telegraph

`Written with great clarity and vigour ... I was completely hooked' -- Antonia Fraser, Guardian Books of the Year

'...thorough, sensitive and well-written'
-- Justin Cartwright, Spectator Books of the Year

Synopsis

'Of the "Great Powers" that dominated Europe from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries, Prussia is the only one to have vanished ..."Iron Kingdom" is not just good: it is everything a history book ought to be ...The nemesis of Prussia has cast such a long shadow that German historians have tiptoed around the subject. Thus it was left to an Englishman to write what is surely the best history of Prussia in any language' - "Sunday Telegraph".
