Over the last 15 years or so, German history has become somewhat boring, relatively speaking. And most Germans are probably quite happy with that, considering what the excitement of much of German history wrought.
Few nations have had their hopes, fears, dreams, allegiances, fates and passions as deeply stamped with their own history as has Germany. For this reason alone, it makes sense to take a quick look at German history to understand the country and its people. By understanding German history, you will be better equipped to understand German culture, customs and complexities.
