Geschichte Des Zweiten Weltkriegs
Geschichte Des Zweiten Weltkriegs
By Kurt Von Tippelskirch
Athenaeum, 1951, 731 pp.

The most satisfactory military history of the Second World War to appear so far in Germany. The author, a former General Staff officer, gives a more balanced picture than Kurt Assmann's "Deutsche Schicksalsjahre" (noted here in April 1951), and avoids the latter's dubious political excursions.
