I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

Die Habsburger ohne Reich

Cover of Die Habsburger ohne Reich.

This book was honestly, truly, terrible. I picked it up because as a history nerd, “where did this family end up” is always an interesting prompt. I had not thought that a single book could contain this amount of disjointed anecdotes, self-important injections, and โ€“ most damningly โ€“ humble and meek servility towards a dead monarchy. If I have to read books by monarchists, I’d prefer them to be stylish and clever instead of sleazy and obnoxious.
