Abstract:

The German Empire was founded in January 1871 not only on the basis of Chancellor Otto von Bismarck's 'blood and iron' policy but also with the support of liberal nationalists.

But Germany alsoplayed a decisive role in tipping Europe's fragile balance of power over the brink and into the cataclysm of the Fi.
