German Unification: Documentary

Here is a good reenactment of the unification of Germany from the Learning Corporation of America. 

It's dated and a bit corny but does a terrific job of reviewing Bismarck's central role in developing German nationalism through blood and iron. 

The documentary reviews the three critical wars--Prussia's attack on Denmark to gain the German-speaking territories of Schleswig-Holstein, Prussia's defeat of the Austrian empire, and the crushing defeat of France in the Franco-Prussian War.

The film runs just under 30 minutes
