Otto von Bismarck Quotes

Did you know about Otto von Bismarck?

In the midst of this disarray the European balance of power was restructured with the creation of the German Empire as the dominant power in Europe. Other European nations led by Britain and France were acquiring colonies in a rapid fashion (see New Imperialism). "

Bismarck also repeated his emphatic warning against any German military involvement in Balkan disputes.

He disliked colonialism but reluctantly built an overseas empire when it was demanded by both elite and mass opinion. As Henry Kissinger has noted "The man of 'blood and iron' wrote prose of extraordinary directness and lucidity comparable in distinctiveness to Churchill's use of the English language. Bismarck (a devout Lutheran) was loyal to his king who in turn gave Bismarck his full support.
