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.
