Die Geschichte Preußens – ein brillant erzähltes Standardwerk

Christopher Clark schildert den Aufstieg Preußens vom kleinen, an Bodenschätzen armen Territorium um Berlin zur dominierenden Macht auf dem europäischen Kontinent. Seine brillante Darstellung von über three hundred Jahren preußischer Historie ist ein Meisterwerk der Geschichtsschreibung.
