Germany: a Short History
Germany: a Short History
By George N. Shuster and Arnold Bergstrasser
Norton, 1944, 238 pp.

This work, a masterpiece of historical condensation, is about equally divided between the pre-1914 and the post-1914 periods. The story as here unfolded is not one to encourage a belief in the easy redemption of Germany, even though the authors are a long way from being anti-German in their approach.
