Essay 2:
To what extent was Bismarck responsible for the unification of Germany in 1871?

Opportunist or Masterplan?

BISMARCK: Importance – influence

Statesmanship – foreign policy


Schleswig-Holstein – setting Austria up

Austro/Prussian: Secures KLEINDEUTSCH

Franco-Prussian 1871 INSTRUMENTAL

Bismarck engineered the war between Prussia and France but it must be noted that without the organisation of von Moltke it is possible that the victory over France may never have been secured. However, Bismarck took his opportunity to define the Western Border of ‘Germany’ and thus must be credited with the achievement of German unification.
