By Johannes Willms

Die Entlarvung eines Mythos

Otto Fürst von Bismarck (1815–1898), der »Eiserne Kanzler« gilt heute noch vielen als Deutschlands größter Staatsmann. Johannes Willms entwirft ein anderes Bild: Er zeigt ihn als Machtpolitiker, der ein process widersprüchlicher Allianzen entwarf und die Einheit des Deutschen Reiches zwar zuwege brachte, aber dessen innere Gegensätze bestehen ließ. Für Willms ist Bismarck einer der Mitverantwortlichen für die Entwicklung zum Ersten Weltkrieg und zur NS-Diktatur.
