The Kaiser on Trial
The Kaiser on Trial
By George Sylvester Viereck
Greystone, 1937, 514 pp

Ever since the prewar era Viereck has been writing on behalf of German policy. After the war he became the active spokesman of the ex-Kaiser in America. In the present work he presents his own hypothetical version of the ex-Kaiser's trial, which the Treaty of Versailles provided for but which never took place. This leads to a review of William's whole life in which we learn how really tragic a figure he is. This book has little historical value and lacks the humorous touch to make it readable.
