Additional Information

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.

Over the past few years, I've been working my way through quite a number of works dealing with the inter-war period -- my particular interest. (Though I should point out that this book covers the period from 1918 through the end of WWII.) I would rate this as one of the most useful. Although detailed, I found it to be very readable. However, it's not a beginner's introduction. This isn't a text directed towards a mass-market audience of casual history buffs. This is for readers who really want to sink their teeth into the deeper questions of Hitler's decision-making. I found it very stimulating.

I would describe the book as roughly chronological in layout, but more subject based in concept. As such, you'll find chapters like 3) "The World Through Hitler's Eye's"; 6) "Hitler and England, 1933-1945, Pretense and Reality"; 7) "German foreign policy and Austria"; 9) "A proposed compromise over Danzig in 1939"; 15) Pearl Harbor: The German Perspective; etc..

Excellent. Several new angles on events that I hadn't heard before.
This is a review of GEMANY, HITLER, AND WORLD WAR II: ESSAYS IN MODERN GERMAN AND WORLD HISTORY by Professor Gerhard L. Weinberg of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Mine is the hardcover edition published by Cambridge University Press 1995.

Professor Weinberg brings a lot of qualifications to this book. Originally born in Germany, he served with the U.S. Army during World War II. After the war, he earned his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and directed the American Historical Association's massive project of microfilming documents captured after Nazi Germany's surrender. Professor Weinberg's research led him to the unpublished manuscript of Hitler's sequel to MEIN KAMPF which eventually came out in an English language edition in 2006 as HITLER'S SECOND BOOK.

GERMANY, HITLER, AND WORLD WAR II was already published by that time, but it is not a conventional integrated narrative. It is a collection of twenty-three essays and an appendix... Read more
