This paper discusses the nineteen year reign of Bismarck as Chancellor of Germany at the end of the nineteenth century. It looks at his domestic and foreign policies and how these affected Germany itself and also its position in the rest of Europe. The paper discusses the wars fought under Bismarck's rule and how he strove for German expansion. The writer concludes that during his rule Bismarck was considered great, but only after the end of the era, did people realize that his policies were not in Germany's best interest.

From the Paper:

"A great man, a great manipulator, Otto von Bismarck held the position of Chancellor in Germany for nineteen years. It was these years that saw such accolades bestowed upon him. It is true, he did do a number of admirable things, but it was not until the end of his term that people began to see the error in his ways. His alliance driven politics and ideas on colonialism were only appreciated when the short-term effect was considered: the long term effect was that Germany was held back by Bismarck and only truly flourished with his resignation."
