Editorial Reviews

An accomplished and highly respected historian in the field of World War II studies, Edwin P. Hoyt offers military buffs new insight to Adolf Hitler's leadership as commander-in-chief of Germany's armed forces in Hitler's War. From Hitler's early successes in Austria and Czechoslovakia, to his later failures in Russia and Normandy, we are treated to a cogent and informed analysis of the Fuhrer's motives, relationships with his generals, and the errors in judgement that were to collapse the German armed forces into total defeat on all fronts. Hoyt reveals that Hitler's skill in manipulating his officers and the German public was ultimate undermined by his obsession with exterminating the Jews and communists and set Germany on the irreversible road to defeat from 1942 onward. Also very highly recommended are Hoyt's The GI's War (081541031X, $19.95) and Japan's War (0815411189, $19.95).
