This multi-volume series in six parts is the first English-language translation of Der Weltkrieg, the German official history of the First World War. Originally produced between 1925 and 1944 using classified archival records that were destroyed in the aftermath of the Second World War, Der Weltkrieg is the inside story of Germany’s experience on the Western front. Recorded in the words of its official historians, this account is vital to the study of the war and official memory in Weimar and Nazi Germany. Although exciting new sources have been uncovered in former Soviet archives, this work remains the basis of future scholarship. It is essential reading for any scholar, graduate student, or enthusiast of the Great War. This volume, the second to be published, covers the outbreak of war in July–August 1914, the German invasion of Belgium, the Battles of the Frontiers, and the pursuit to the Marne in early September 1914. The first month of war was a critical period for the German army and, as the official history makes clear, the German war plan was a gamble that seemed to present the only solution to the riddle of the two-front war. But as the Moltke-Schlieffen Plan was gradually jettisoned through a combination of intentional command decisions and confused communications, Germany’s hopes for a quick and victorious campaign evaporated.

Haig S Enemy

Jonathan Boff's pioneering study, Haig's Enemy, draws on Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria's diaries and letters to explore the Western Front from the 'other side of the wire'. Viewing the Great War through the eyes of one of Germany's leading generals, the direct counterpart and enemy of Sir Douglas Haig, enables us to see many of the controversies of the Western Front in a completely new light. The picture which emerges is far removed from the sterilestalemate of myth. Instead, we see the Western Front as a highly dynamic 'battle-space', both physical and intellectual, where three armies struggled not only to out-fight, but also to out-think, their enemy, ina game where the stakes could not have been higher.

Germany S Ancient Pasts

In Germany, Nazi ideology casts a long shadow over the history of archaeological interpretation. Propaganda, school curricula, and academic publications under the regime drew spurious conclusions from archaeological evidence to glorify the Germanic past and proclaim chauvinistic notions of cultural and racial superiority. But was this powerful and violent version of the distant past a nationalist invention or a direct outcome of earlier archaeological practices? By exploring the myriad pathways along which people became familiar with archaeology and the ancient past—from exhibits at local and regional museums to the plotlines of popular historical novels—this broad cultural history shows that the use of archaeology for nationalistic pursuits was far from preordained. In Germany’s Ancient Pasts, Brent Maner offers a vivid portrait of the development of antiquarianism and archaeology, the interaction between regional and national history, and scholarly debates about the use of ancient objects to answer questions of race, ethnicity, and national belonging. While excavations in central Europe throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries fed curiosity about the local landscape and inspired musings about the connection between contemporary Germans and their “ancestors,” antiquarians and archaeologists were quite cautious about using archaeological evidence to make ethnic claims. Even during the period of German unification, many archaeologists emphasized the local and regional character of their finds and treated prehistory as a general science of humankind. As Maner shows, these alternative perspectives endured alongside nationalist and racist abuses of prehistory, surviving to offer positive traditions for the field in the aftermath of World War II. A fascinating investigation of the quest to turn pre- and early history into history, Germany’s Ancient Pasts sheds new light on the joint sway of science and politics over archaeological interpretation.

Suspenseful, dramatic events unfold in chronological, interwoven stories from the different perspectives of people who experienced the battle while it was happening. Narratives intertwine to create a breathless, "What's Next?" kind of read. Students gain a new perspective on historical figures as they learn about real people struggling to decide how best to act in a given moment.

Germany's campaigns in Poland, Norway, the Low Countries, France, and North Africa from 1939 to 1942 ushered in a new era of warfare during which the practice of Blitzkrieg, or Lightning War, was employed with devastating effect.

In addition, specification tables accompany all drawings of the hardware. Sidebars offer insight to the famous commanders who directed the campaigns -- Rommel, Rundstedt, and Student, for example -- while detailed appendices contain essential information on specific battles, German losses, and equipment.

The failure of Germany's first republic after World War I has aroused several decades of concentrated study. Synthesizing that study, this historical dictionary will enhance an understanding of the Weimar era. It covers individuals as diverse as Bertolt Brecht, Adolf Hitler, and the physicist Lise Meitner. There are also entries defining such events as the Beerhall Putsch, the Republic's various organizations and institutions, and its complex array of political parties. The dictionary also gives substance to cultural terms (such as Dada), and to film, music, and other media, as well as to those concepts, such as Anti-Semitism, deemed vital to an understanding of the period.
