Abstract

The central role of the army in the historical development of Germany has long been worried- at by historians and has formed the subject of a number of specialised studies. Yet since the publicaton of Gordon A. Craig's The Politics of the Prussian Army 1640-1915 (1955) and Karl Demeter's The German Officer Corps in Society and State 1640-1935 (1965), there has been no attempt to synthesize the findings of these monographs into a book capable of appealing to the general reader until the publication of A Military History of Germany.
