Review quote

a frightening analysis of the effect of continuous criminal propaganda on the rank-and-file of an army * Christopher Logue, The Guardian * 'A sombre account, using much first-hand evidence.'
The Observer `a stimulating work about the problem of military solidarity and its relation to fighting efficiency.'
Sociology 'an impressively researched and imaginatively presented contribution'
George H. Stein, State University of New York, American Historical Review, October 1992 'a well-researched, gripping account of the Wehrmacht's titanic efforts to win Hitler's war despite the blunder of invading Russia'
Anglo-German Review 'exciting and provocative essay ... This book is a chilling reminder of how rapidly State-led violence can degenerate into military barbarism, no less in Iraq or Kampuchea than in Hitler's war'
Richard Overy, The Observer
