The module will provide brief references to the early and medieval history of Germany and move on to the modern history of Germany with the main emphasis on history of the German empire.
With unification of Germany and defeat of France in the Franco-Prussian war in 1870, a new era ushers in the German history i.e. the era of the German empire.
The German Empire, also referred to as the Second Reich, dominated central Europe, from 1871 to 1918. The module will highlight the developments which culminated in unification of Germany towards the later half of the 19th century and ultimately resulting into the formation of the German empire. With William Is proclamation as the Emperor and Otto von Bismarck as the first imperial Chancellor the German empire occupied a central place in the balance of power in Europe. With Bismarck's 'Blood and Iron policy' the German empire was embarking on ambitious plans for militarism. Being on the bandwagon of power Germany soon joined the European scramble for Africa. The module will cover Germany's march to the early 20th century and the developments which led to the World War I. After the WW I the German empire was dissolved in 1918 resulting into formation of the Republic also called the Weimar Republic.
The module will provide a concluding reference to the division of Germany following the World War II, the Cold War period and the Unification of Germany in 1990.
