Engaging Read

by Kartoffelpreusser on Apr 3, 2008

From the title you might think this a narrowly focussed work: On the contrary, this book is an excellent stroll through German history, simply using the von Moltke family as a lens through which to view it. The writing is excellent, bringing people, places, and events to brilliant life, with generally very solid research and analysis for a single-volume work. Obviously the focus is on the 1870-1945 period, but background to the middle ages, and epilogue concerning the lost German lands today, also completes the arc of this extremely readable book. This is how popular history books should be done.

Important History

by AJCM on May 10, 2007

Excellent book giving an explanation from all sides of the events leading to the wars involving Germany and the world's involvement. After reading Bonhoeffer and seeing the movie, I felt that this one on Von Moltke would be an important companion book and it is.
