Kohle Und Eisen Im Weltkriege Und in Den Friedensschlüssen
Kohle Und Eisen Im Weltkriege Und in Den Friedensschlüssen
By F. Friedensburg
Oldenbourg, 1934, 332 pp

This is a long-needed book, as important for the student of politics as for the student of economics, for it brings together a mass of material showing the influence of coal and iron supplies upon international relations before and during the war, and analyzes in detail the part played by these important materials in the formulation of the peace terms. Such subjects as the Upper Silesian question, the invasion of the Ruhr, and of course the Saar problem, are dealt with at some length.
