The German Chancellor Angela Merkel

Overall, I enjoyed this short biography. I would have liked to have hear the personal information at the beginning. Being American, I have virtually no understanding of Germany's governmental structure or of it's numerous political parties and seemingly ever-changing alliances. A little history and background there would have been most useful.

ok for a short read

there was a lot of background on Merkel's political career. not much on her personal life or her handling of the Ukraine conflict. it covered her belief in the refugee crisis well.
