Summary
"Drawing on a wealth of first-hand testimony, the German War is the first foray for many decades into how the German people experienced the Second World War. Told from the perspective of those who lived through it-- soldiers, school-teachers and housewives; Nazis, Christians and Jews-- its masterful historical narrative sheds fresh and disturbing light on the beliefs, hopes, and fears of people who embarked on, continued, and fought to the end, a brutal war of conquest and genocide"--
Summary
Drawing on a range of primary source materials—personal diaries, court records and military correspondence—the author explores the German psyche during World War II, specifically why they prolonged the war when their defeat was all but assured as early as 1941
