The German General Staff: Its history and structure, 1657-1945
The German General Staff: Its history and structure, 1657-1945

The origins of the general staff are explained and its subsequent development leading to Ludendorff's virtual control of the German state during WWI.
I found it especially interesting with regard to Hitler's rejection of the Staff's advice and his setting up an equivalent body not staff trained with predictable results. No wonder the Allies decided not to attempt an assasination.

Certainly not light reading, but having said that it is an enlightening work as regards the attitudes of the Prussian Officer Corps. I would advocate other non-German speakers should do as I, have A German English dictionary to hand although many of the terms are translated some are not and prove of interest.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The condition of the book was as described arrived well within the stated time frame. It certainly explains in detail the final period of WW1 which tends to be glossed over in more general works and shows that there was considerable fighting and loss of life to be suffered.

Guns of the Northeast: Coastal Defences from the Tyne to the Humber (Battlefield Britain)
by Joe Foster
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars was in as good as condition described, 5 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It arrived well before the dates indicated, was in as good as condition described. A book that all students of coastal artillery should have and study.
Whilst there is much made of the actual attack by the German Navy, I have seen little regarding the defences and am extremely grateful to Joe Foster the author for his thoroughly researched work. Alan Ridley (inferior half of Balmuchybabe)
