Peter  Siebenmorgen - Franz Josef Strauß


Politics as a primordial force: the big biography to mark the politician's 100th birthday

He was a cabinet minister four times, felt called to be federal chancellor, but this the position yielding the most power was closed to him. And yet, without Franz Josef Strauß, the history of Federal Germany would have been different. His career was as stormy as he as a person was – each meteoric rise was followed by a sudden nosedive. He was the star of the grand coalition government, opposition whip, lost against Helmut Schmidt and ended up as the sad king of Bavaria.
