This may have already been answered but can anyone recommend a biography of the kaiser. Something for the long winter evenings.

Many thanks

John C. G. Rohl (Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Sussex) has written an award-winning, very detailed 3-volume biography, as well as a one-volume "concise" biography.

Here is a link to his Amazon UK page:

Rohl is excellent. However if you fancy something a little less hefty 'Kaiser: War Lord of the Second Reich' by Alan Palmer is also well researched and on Amazon.
