Product description

Review

Dr Appelbaum's book is not only a detailed study of Jewish military chaplaincy in the Imperial German Army; it is a significant contribution to the study of military chaplaincy in the European context. Loyalty Betrayed will be of interest to students from many different academic disciplines. --David Blake, Curator, The Museum of Army Chaplaincy (UK)

Meticulously researched, skilfully written and a pleasure to read, this volume provides a much-needed study of the dedicated and sacrificial service of rabbis to German soldiers in a war in which trauma and tragedy were daily realities of trench warfare. The volume fills a gap in war and religion studies for the First World War providing tremendous insight regarding matters of faith and force in a war that has consequences into the present. Appelbaum's volume is a welcome addition to both military history and religious studies. --Timothy J. Demy, US Naval War College

Peter Appelbaum has made accessible for the first time to the English reader a collection of fascinating primary sources, written by rabbis serving as chaplains in the German Army, both on the Western and the Eastern Fronts, during the Great War. Composed during the period of active service, these illuminating texts poignantly dramatise the complexities of this war, especially for German Jews who - sincerely convinced that theirs was the side of justice and right - were deeply committed to their country and believed that the sacrifices they made in combat, even to the point of fighting and killing other Jews in the enemy ranks, would finally eliminate any conceivable basis for anti-Semitism. --Marc Saperstein, Professor of Jewish Studies, King's College, London --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Peter Appelbaum was born in 1947 and educated in South Africa, where he graduated MD. He emigrated to the United States in 1978 and is currently retired as Emeritus Professor of Pathology, and writes books on Jewish military history.
