Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The question of German unity was the most important and intractable problem to remain unsettled after World War II. W.R. Smyser explores "the German Question" and uses it to illustrate the story of how Germany was divided and then united against a background of global events and a continuing search for stable peace in an area that has not known it since the age of Charlemagne. Focusing on the personalities who controlled Germany's fate — FDR, Churchill, Stalin, Kennedy, Brandt, Reagan, Bush, Gorbachev, Kohl and others — Smyser creates a masterful portrait of a country that has played a pivotal role in the history of the twentieth century.

Synopsis:

In this examination of post-World War II Germany, Smyser shows how Germany was divided and then united against a backdrop of global events and discusses the country's continuing search for stability. Foreword by Paul H. Nitze. of photos.
