Germany from Defeat to Conquest 1913-1933
Germany from Defeat to Conquest 1913-1933
By W. M. Knight-Patterson
Allen and Unwin, 1945, 622 pp.

An amply documented history of the Weimar Republic, in which the author makes clear the failure of all the political parties, including the Socialist, to do anything effective toward establishing the indispensable bases for real democracy in Germany. There is a useful list of "books consulted."
