In this episode, we revisit the unification of Germany with added commentary to update some content in preparation for our discussion on fascism. We follow the German states from the Napoleonic Wars through the revolutions of 1848 until Otto von Bismarck helms a culturally and politically exceptional campaign to create a new great power in Europe. Dan McGinnis returns as guest.
This episode is part five in our extended look at the history of fascism.
