New military history research: Bismark's calculated moves

The Canadian Journal of History has provided a segment of a study on the interview of Otto von Bismark at the 1878 Congress of Berlin by Henri Opper de Blowitz.  The study probes closely into the interview that some consider a blemish on Bismark’s record.  However, the study examines the possibility that this interview was a calculated move on Bismark’s part to guide European politics.  Regardless of the intent, the published interview did greatly affect European politics with a great many voices weighing in to comment on Bismark’s intentions.
