Book Review: Johann Friedrich Struensee: Artz, Staatsmann, Geliebter der Koenigin by Udo Grashoff

Title: Johann Friedrich Struensee: Artz, Staatsmann, Geliebter der Koenigin
Author: Udo Grashoff
Publisher: Hasenverlag GmbH
Publication Date: 2008
Pages: 98
Format: Paperback
Genre: Biography/History

This book chronicles the life of doctor and reformer Johann Friedrich Struensee (yes, the one in the film A Royal Affair). It was after seeing the recent Danish film that I became interested in him and was suprised to find how little published material there available.

This book, written in German, is one of the few I've come across and I found it to be a fascinating and compassionate account of a man who tried to help but was unfairly maligned.
