When Bismarck first got into politics many people already knew of his reputation as a strong and feared man no one however could envisage that within 9 years he could do the impossible unite Germany So what made Bismarck so special As we have already discussed he was helped largely by his canny ability to strike the opposition when they where at less than full strength nevertheless victories over Denmark in the Schleswig Holstein affair Austria at Kniggratz Sadowa and more importantly France at Sedan showed that Bismarck was still a very intelligent and manipulative man The main reason Germany had never been unified was the other European powers strongly resented any attempts as they saw it as a danger to the current equilibrium of power within Europe If Germany was to become united it would most definitely become the strongest and influential power in Europe and this was seen to be in the best interest of no one excluding Germany However when Bismarck came to power he was very fortunate to catch the rest of Europe involved with their own little problems and due to the inexperience and lack of a Prussian army they never truly saw them as a major political threat until it was too late This enabled Bismarck to implement his plan for a Klein Deutschland under the rule and govern of Prussia with his success on and off the battlefield Bismarck was able to mould the Prussian army into a small yet highly effective fighting unit that would ultimately create his dream However after winning the three wars Denmark Austria and France Bismarck had done the impossible united Germany under Prussian control To look distinctively at Bismarcks role in the new German empire you need to analyse both his domestic and foreign policies in order to see how he was moulding Germany together and what he was doing to ensure no other countries got involved in his Klein Deutschland
