Reichswehrpolitik in Der Weimarer Zeit
Reichswehrpolitik in Der Weimarer Zeit
By Otto Gessler
Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt, 1958, 582 pp

These memoirs are quite important for the history of the Weimar Republic, especially the much discussed question of German defense and rearmament. Gessler, who died in 1955, was Reichswehrminister in 14 cabinets from 1920 to 1928. The material is well edited, and benefits from an extensive biographical introduction.
