Description

This remarkable book presents detailed minutes of Hitler's military conferences between 1942 and 1945. Uncensored, and therefore of incredible historical value, the transcriptions of those key meetings reveal in detail how Hitler directed his war and marshalled his forces in their bid to conquer Europe. This impressive volume is packed with detail. The transcriptions themselves are supplemented by maps and careful notes by leading authorities on personalities, military developments and background information. The surviving minutes of these meetings cover German strategy from Stalingrad to the Fall of Berlin and reveal Hitler's attempts to reverse his fading fortune. Hitler and his Generals reveals much about Hitler's personal dealings with his military commanders; how Hitler rated his opponents and his own troops; how weapons and technological developments had a bearing on military operations; and, above all, how Hitler planned and thought as a commander. The transcriptions reveal, with astonishing clarity, Hitler's methods and grasp of military affairs as he attempts to sustain, against the odds, the Thousand Year Reich.show more
