Germany, Hitler, and World War II: Essays in Modern German and World History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Far more than a conflict of imperial aggression, World War II was about "blood and soil," a fight to determine who would control the earth's resources and which races would be exterminated because they were deemed inferior or undesirable. This collection of essays, many never before published in English, illuminates the nature of the Nazi system and its impact on Germany and the world. Included are careful examinations of the Holocaust, the connections between the European and Pacific theaters of war, a comparative analysis of the leadership styles of Hitler, Stalin, Tojo, and Roosevelt and a look back at postwar Germany.

Synopsis:

'This series of studies illuminates the nature of the Nazi system and its impact on Germany and the world. Bringing together essays now widely scattered and including several never previously published in English, this volume includes work on the Holocaust, the connections between the European and Pacific theatres of war, the leaders, and the effects of World War II. Weinberg also provides revisionist interpretations of key topics which have been badly misunderstood, including the impact of the Treaty of Versailles and Germany’s relations with England, the United States, and the Soviet Union.\n
