ISBN 0518101657 "The author served as an officer in the Reichswehr under the German Republic, and had the advantage of undergoing several Gener al Staff courses. That service having become impossible to him under Hitler, he lived in Germany for a time in active opposition to the government before finding his way as a volunteer, after the war began, into the ranks of the British A r m y , f r o m which he was invalided out. Here he reviews the careers of Hitler's generals in the light of their environment and their mental training, portraying most of them from personal contact either with the men themselves or with officer s of t he i r im me di a te circle. He presents their history under Hitler and in Hitler's war with intimate glimpses that should make clearer the governing influence upon the nation and the results, all unforeseen, of Hitler's rise upon them."
