Prussian history

I find history fascinating and intend to read even more history books once I'm fully retired. The internet is also a very useful source of information, though you do have to be a little careful about the quality and reliability of the material.
Prussia grew from being one of many German states to become the most significant by the second half of the 19th Century. For an overview of Prussian history a good starting place is from the broadcaster RBB. This is a true multimedia site with plenty of visual and audio material in addition to text. There is some video material but not the original broadcasts. You can navigate through the site in a variety of ways which include a timeline as well as menus and hypertext links.
