Review: Germany and the Two World Wars

User Review  - Nick - Goodreads

Short account of German foreign policy and strategy from about 1890 to 1945. Especially good on Hitler's objectives and Germany's relations with Britain, the Soviet Union, and Japan as things got going. Mercifully brief on the origins of World War I. Read full review
