Franz-Josef Strauss

Neither in the Bavarian nor in the Federal German history are there politicians who were equally admired and hated like Franz Josef Strauß. A man who propagated both conservative values and progress, who led Bavaria into the future as Prime Minister and is still one of the CSU's most prominent politicians today. Political scandals such as the Spiegel affair also wrote him into German history. He held several ministerial posts under Adenauer and Kiesinger, and as a member of the Bundestag, the eloquent rhetorician and polemicist fought legendary battles with his political opponents. Only the chancellery was denied him.
