Iron Kingdom: The Rise and Downfall of Prussia, 1600-1947 by Christopher Clarke. Pretty much the best overview text for German history during the periods covered. Simply amazing piece of work.
Frederick the Great: King of Prussia by Tim Blanning. Unsurprisingly this is about the man himself but it's fantastic for learning about the events that shaped him and why he was as successful as he was.
