Bismarck and the Origin of the German Empire, by F.M. Powicke (1879 - 1963)

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/bismarck-and-origin-of-german-empire-powicke/

Volunteers outside the USA: F.M. Powicke died in 1963. This person's work may still be protected by copyright in countries where copyright duration is determined by the author's death date. In Europe this is 70 years; in Canada it is 50 years; and in Australia it is 70 years for authors who died after 1955.
Despite its brevity, this Little Blue Book #142 by the Oxford historian, Sir F.M. Powicke, provides a valuable overview of the political history of Germany from medieval to modern times, culminating in the career of Otto von Bismarck (1815-1898), the Prussian Junker who masterminded the unification of Germany and served as its first Chancellor. (Summary by Pamela Nagami, M.D.)

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Pam,
The Archive scan doesn't have a copyright year but what appears to be the same book is here:

https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uiug.30112038035652&view=1up&seq=9

They state that it is PD in the US and we trust this site. A quick look suggests they are just different scans of the same text (e.g. TOCs are identical). If you agree then it doesn't matter which one you read from though I entered the HathiTrust link on the Project Screen page again because of the statement that the book is PD in the US.

Let me know if any changes are needed.
Dave

0-1 PL OK!

You could call the first section "zero" and not "zero-zero."
