The 10 Best German History Books
This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in February of 2018. From the fall of the Holy Roman Empire and creation of the Merovingian dynasty to the Reformation and epic conflicts of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the character of modern Germany is defined as much by its history prior to Kaiser Wilhelm I's reign as it is by the defining events of its existence as a nation today: WWI, the Third Reich, the Cold War Era and Reunification.
