This book is classic Showalter, witty, insightful, and remarkably erudite. This is the perfect match between author and project.
Michael S. Neiberg, author of Dance of Furies
Dennis Showalter does it again. America's leading historian returns to his speciality, the German army, and provides a first rate study, at once accessible and scholarly, that focuses on the strengths, resilience, and eventual failure of the army during the First World War. A deft mix of the varied levels and experience of war.
The insights are unmatched and intriguing, and in many cases Showalter debunks or explains myths regarding the war . . . Showalter's analysis of all aspects of the German Army experience in WWI is a must- read for anyone with an interest in WWI or German military history.
...for those who are more interested in the machinations and policies that shaped one of the most profound conflicts of the modern age, this is an excellent resource.
