D this I really found this easy to read I listened to this n audiobook and didn t realize at first that the author was using uotes and I was upset at the language used Once I understood that the author was making a point La fortuna dei Wise of including how racist these monarchs were I enjoyed itThe references to the yellow race and natives savages etc is jarring but importantThis war will drag in the colonies and involve all kindsf innocent partiesI had not understood how the scramble for africa contributed to underlying tensions that also contribute to the hostilities Thunderbolts: Justice, Like Lightning... of warFascinatingThis book also includes the knowledge that the countries involved in WWI were well aware that a conflict like this could result in a devastating war like WWIThey knew and did it anyway I have a joke for you hereditary monarchies That s it That s the joke Of all the ways that man has devised for cornering power none is as breathtaking as the hereditary monarchy For centuries kings and ueens have ruled vast nations based solelyn the notion that their blood is somehow royal It s utter wash By Pike and Dyke :A Tale of the Rise of the Dutch Republic of course as countless failed leaders have proven There is nothing special about royal blood It is the same blood as runs throughur veins Except for the hemophilia The royals have a lot hemophilia The absurdity Medioevo «superstizioso» of the crown runs like a black joke throughout Miranda Carter s triple biography George Nicholas and Wilhelm Three Royal Cousins and the Road to World War I King George Vf Great Britain Kaiser Wilhelm II Death of a Dreamer of Germany and Tsar Nicholas IIf Russia were not great men They were not even average men uite to the contrary they were eminently unsuited to lead a PTA meeting much less globe spanning empires They are Exhibits A through C as to why the coincidental meeting The Beloved Scoundrel of sperm and egg should not decide any country s transferf power Of course by the time World War I rolled around that had become apparent to most thinking people Accordingly King George V was a figurehead Kaiser Wilhelm was constrained by Reichstag and Downcanyon: A Naturalist Explores the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon only Nicholas II came close to a true autocrat in fact a true autocrat right to the end which spelled doom for him his wife and his children This reality theccasional impotence Il Barça of these leaders defines the contoursf Carter s book The subtitle Three Royal Cousins and the Road to World War I hints that the intertwining lives Italian Phrase Book of these three ridiculous men had something to do with the collision in the Balkans and the resulting catastrophe in Europe That s not the case Leaving aside the infamous Willy Nicky telegrams these three men played diminished rolesf varying importance leading up to 1914 and were well seated bystanders during the July Crisis To Carter s credit she doesn t try to prove Lovesong (Green Creek otherwise There is noverarching theory that the blood relationships and diplomatic relationships between these three men caused The Countess or could have averted World War I This is not an academic history It is not concerned with political movementsr geopolitical posturing Gully Dirt: On Exposing the Klan, Raising a Hog, and Escaping the South or Balkan historyr entangling alliances Instead it is the story Kelttiläistarinoita of three average to below average men who were all wayver their heads The punch line being that none f them realized how far ver their heads they were Taken that way George Nicholas and Wilhelm is well researched ably presented and easily read It is also uite entertaining Carter mostly ignores the political science angle and focuses instead Uomini ad Auschwitz: Storia del più famigerato campo di sterminio nazista on the human dimension This is the perfect route to take because George Nicholas and Wilhelm were excruciatingly human There was never any hint that Godr the gods smiles upon these men George is the least interesting partially because he had no power in an England dominated by Parliament and partially because he was a big dull dud George in fact perfectly embodies the modern British crown He was a fop Roma Noir obsessed with clothes he had an intellect that wasf no use than a pistol packed at the bottom A History of the Crusades, Volumes I, II and III (Boxed Set) of a trunk ifne was attacked in the robber infested Apennines and he had intense dislike for everything complex His great passions in life were stamp collecting and shooting He was very good at shooting George s bsession with aristocratic hunting beaters to flush the game servants to carry his guns and lunch was shared with Tsar Nicholas with whom George also shared an uncanny resemblance Indeed in 1893 Nicholas

OK I haven t read this book I will maybe but I was pissed after reading a review Here s part f a review that demonstrates why I The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, Vol. 2 often hate reviews in the NY Times Book Review Last two paragraphs George Nicholas and Wilhelm is an impressive book Ms Carter has clearly not bittenff than she can chew for she as John Updike Astrología para principiantes once wrote about G nter Grass chews it enthusiastically beforeur eyes You turn this book s pages with interest however but rarely with eagerness It s a volume that never uite warms in your hands packed perhaps too airlessly with what Ms Carter describes at ne point as backstabbing intrigue and muddle That phrase would have made a good alternative title First paragraph says it s impressive Fine And then goes n to make another compliment after some silly gratuitous name dropping that the author chews it enthusiastically Not No Puedo Perderte onef Updike s felicitous metaphorsOK I m interested sounds positive right But then WTF comes the seemingly negative but rarely with interest Because the book never uite warms in your handspacked too airlessly Huh Filled with backstabbing intrigue and muddle which makes it sound interesting again Obviously the writer In Every Heartbeat of this review is staring in the mirror preening with self satisfaction at having sounded sufficiently erudite andpaue so we haven t a clue what to thinkedited to include maybe As I previously read in ueen Victoria s Matchmaking it was Albert s and later Victoria s dream to create a network The Seraphim Code of European monarchies where conflicts between the various European empires could be solved during a Christmas dinner Instead a King a Kaiser and a Czar which happened to be eachthers cousins happily went to war It was perhaps Albert s greatest mistake to assume that Kings in the modern world Sortemesse of the early 20th century still would be able to shape modern politics In fact the three monarchs were ill euipped by education and personality to deal with the modern world and with the exceptionf George were not able to prevent the La fabbrica di cioccolato outbreakf World War IIn this book Miranda Carter realties a personal history Klara with A K of the three monarchs But at the same time she shows how this history also shows how Europe moved from an agef empire to an age Serving Sera of democracy self determination and greater brutalityWe have theften colourless and stamp collecting George who within the British constitution played a necessary but entirely formal and ceremonial role As a matter Samurai! of fact it didn t matter who was King as long as he was sober and followed the rules How different for Wilhelm II who in the evenings designs fancy new uniforms while his government is trying to keep his faux pas to a minimum And finally there is Nicholas who as a self proclaimed reclusive is his palace is unawaref the revolutions in his country and in the end is forced to abdicate and murdered by the BolsheviksOnly for George the story doesn t end with a tragedy He alone managed to hang La meglio gioventù on to his throne until eldest son David aka Edward VIII gave it away in 1936 The world is fullf Kings and ueens Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams This book was long dense and detailed From the endorsements n

George V and Kaiser Wilhelm II in the years from their birth to World War II with additional focus By the Light of the Moon on ueen Victoria and Edward VII Carter is absolutely unsparingf each man s

Alexi s hemophiliaI didn t love the book as much in the end as I did in the beginning Why I am not uite sure Maybe it is because I listened to it rather than read it Let me explain The narrator Rosalyn Landor used Second Sight (Circle of Three, one theatrical voice a gruff British male voice for all the different men For me I associated this voice with Wilhelm but in fact she used exactly the same intonation for allf the uotes voiced by men I became confused and unsure who was speaking Is this George Strife or Wilhelmr Nicholas Only a Few Bones: A True Account of the Rolling Fork Tragedy and Its Aftermath or in fact somebody else WHO is talking now I would have to rewind And why did I always assume that it was Wilhelm speaking he is German Usually I try and rate the written book but here the narration caused me confusion and affected my appreciationf that written For this reason it has influenced my rating The confusion doesn t happen in the beginning Baby Colossus (Short Story) of the book the reader knows exactly who the author is speakingf I wish Landor had just read the book without adding a theatrical presentation If she wanted to dramatize the voices she
