Assassination is extremely risky, though. If you fail, you get hanged--as the July 20th conspirators discovered in real life.
Hanged by who? The Amry? the Police? the Courts? These are the groups that would be lining up to support a coup against a radically reforming Kaiser. Look at the attitude those pretty much same people took against right wing coupers, compared to left wing coupers post ww1. Was Hitler in any dnager of being hanged for his failed putsch?
Bismark with the support of all the existisng privileged power groups, against the Kaiser, Socialists and a few liberals how do you see it playing out?
