Bismarck, the beginning

The great problem with Bismarck is allowing him to play his essential part of the story of 1870 without taking it over completely?  He was such an accomplished raconteur and prophet that, if I am not careful, he will convince me that the book should be renamed The Glorious Doings of Herr Graf von Bismarck in1870!
He has so many good stories to tell, however, that I cannot forego letting him talk.
