The German Wars 1914-1945

The German Wars 1914-1945
By D. J. Goodspeed
561 pp, Houghton Mifflin, 1977

A partial account of the two wars, seen as one process, and with a heavy emphasis on military narrative. At times idiosyncratically researched and argued: France is held responsible for World War I, and the record of the half-century is summed up by: "What was begun by murder is now being completed by suicide."
