Booknews
Deals with the military activities of the German in the interwar period. Traces the path by which the army not only managed to survive, but to lay the groundwork for its rebirth by preparing a veritable military revolution. Tells how the army reassessed its methods of making war, developed a new doctrine stressing the war of movement, and devised a realistic operation doctrine for tanks and other mechanized vehicles.

    Excellent description of the activities of the German army during the inter-war period

    Dr. Citino does an excellent job describing the recovery of the German army after WWI, despite the constraints of the Versailles treaty. The book contains detailed descriptions of training methods and wargames used by the Germans. he also describes the state of the army before and after the rise of Adolf Hitler. Some interesting aspects are the controversies within the army about whether or not to use new technology or continue the use of outdated tactics.
