Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Armchair General
"Palmer has succeeded in creating an outstanding short history of the German wars that influenced the development of Europe and the world in the 19th and 20th centuries. It’s a terrific introduction and overview of the subject."

Military Heritage
"...a provocative look at the methods that Germany used to wage war, and why ultimately they failed."

Midwest Book Review
"The German Wars provides a fine survey of how a nation came to be recognized for its military supremacy - despite losing two world wars. Michael Palmer provides an analysis of German military might that discusses their strategic failures, bad assumptions, and how their method of superior warfare became outdated. Chapters describe major battles of Germans and offer fine strategic analysis perfect for military history holdings."

Kepler's Military History Book Reviews
"This is an excellent book...It is highly readable. It would be an excellent addition to the library of any military historian, public library, university library as well as personal collection of persons with interest in European or Trans-Atlantic History."

Bookviews by Alan Caruba
"The German Wars provides both detail and insight regarding a nation called “the Huns” by those it attacked. Feared for its excellence on the battlefield, the irony is that it lost both wars it initiated in the last century, but its full history is filled with a warning for a new generation that faces off against new potential enemies, not the least of which is Iran these days."
