Has anyone read the book of Luise Sophie, Friedrich Leopold of Prussia, "Behind the Scenes at the Prussian Court" ?

It is on my wish list, but I'm not sure to buy it...

Interesting book but full of grievances on Kaiser Wilhelm II whom Luise Sophie considered a foolish tyrant. She blames Kaiser in all her problems and all problems of her family...sometimes her text sounds like she was a martyr...But the book is worth to read anyway.

I read on another board about a book called something like "Forty Years In Service of The Kaiserin" by Countess Keller, but I can't find that book anywhere online. Only mentions of it.  Anyone ever hear of it?Does it go by a different name? I have the 3 volume "Private Lives of Kaiser Wilhelm and His Consort" from 1909, it is not that book is it? I'm thinking it is  a different book but having no luck in my search.

The german title of the book is "Vierzig Jahre im Dienst der Kaiserin". The authoress is Mathilde Gräfin von Keller. It is available by amazon.

Luise Sophie's book is indeed both very interesting and full of grievances. Worth a read, but don't take her opinions too seriously.

How does one find Wilhelm's book "Memories of Corfu"? written in 1924? I see it mentioned in several books but it does not exist anywhere online. Is it under another name, or  only a few copies published? I found My Early Life and his Memoirs easily, but his book on Corfu is impossible to find so far, at least under that name.

On the Great war forum 1914-1918invisionzone.com Western front section there is a post:

In the @KaisersBattle mentioned above on a 13 April posting there is a film Bilder Aus Der groben Schalacht 2 Teil which is on youtube on the Kaiserheer in what looks like Operation Michael. Note one artillery piece being towed by cattle because the German army was short of horses they used cattle or oxen to sometimes tow their artillery. Also note the torn up landscape
