This review is from: The German High Command At War: Hindenburg and Ludendorff and the First World War (Paperback)
I read, and agreed, with "Reader from London's" review of this book.
More recently I have read and reviewed, Roger Chickering's "Imperial Germany and the Great War 1914-1918" which very much supports the contention that Ludendorff was to all intents and purposes a sort of military dictator, until his nerve cracked after the failures of 1918 offensives.
The meeting with the Kaiser on 29th September 1918 gave Ludendorff the opportunity, as both Chickering and Asprey show, to support a consitutional monarchy under which the Social Democrats would take the blame for defeat.
The seeds of Adolf Hitler's rise to power were born on that day.
