Product Description

Review

""The Rise of the Wehrmacht: The German Armed Forces and World War II" is the first comprehensive work to deal with the German war effort in World War II from this point of view. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it covers the entire war effort from the point of view of the German military that actually conducted and fought the war, something that has never been done before on this scale." -

Lt. Colonel Robert A. Lynn, Florida Guard

"This volume will be an excellent addition to all collections dealing with WW II. ...A very readable book for all WW II collections. Summing Up: Highly recommended." -

1.0 out of 5 stars Trash 5 Sept. 2015
By R Wettengel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I cannot recommend anyone purchase either volume of this work. For a work copyrighted in 2008, the deficiencies in the bibliography are inexcusable. Out of a total of more than 200 sources cited, it is clear from the bibliography that the author has not engaged with the most recent scholarship on the Wehrmacht. There is only work cited that was published in the '00's and a relative handful which were published in the 1990's. Since the work does not engage with the latest scholarship, it belongs in a museum, not on the present-day bookshelf of a historian of the Third Reich or of the Second World War.
