9781844862351: The Kaiser's Army: The German Army in World War One

In this comprehensive book, David Stone describes and analyzes every aspect of the German Army as it existed under Kaiser Wilhelm II, encompassing its development and antecedents, organization, personnel, weapons and equipment, inherent strengths and weaknesses, and victories and defeats as it fought on many fronts throughout World War I.

The book deals in considerable detail with the origins and creation of the German army, examining the structure of power in German politics and wider society and the nation's imperial ambitions, along with the ways in which the high command and general staff functioned in terms of strategy and tactical doctrine. Stone examines the nature, background, recruitment, training, and military experiences of the officers, NCOs, and soldiers, as well as personal and collective values relating to honor, loyalty, and conscience.

In addition the army's operations. Stone gives context with an overview of the army at war, covering the key actions and outcomes of major campaigns from 1914 to 1918 up to the signature of the Armistice at Compiègne. For anyone seeking a definitive reference on the German Army of the period--whether scholar, historian, serving soldier or simply a general reader--this remarkable book will prove an invaluable work.

About the Author:

David Stone is a former British army infantry officer. Much of his service was in Germany, both with and alongside soldiers of the Bundeswehr in peacetime and on operations. He became a military historian in 2002 and is the author of the authoritative works Hitler's Army: The Men, Machines and Organisation, 1939-1945 (2009) and Fighting for the Fatherland: The Story of the German Soldier from 1648 to the Present Day (2006).

Review:

A hugely impressive book. It not only provides an astonishing abundance of factual material but is also compellingly readable. It draws you in by providing a lucid and thought-provoking account of the army's development in the march to war, and imparts some powerful lessons in human ingenuity and political misjudgement. Ultimately, it is deeply satisfying, for it delivers everything that you expect, and more. Dr Ian Mortimer, Author and Historian the most comprehensive and accessible English language book about the German Imperial Army in peace and at war across all fronts from 1914-18 ... fascinating and informative - a treasure trove! ... 'hats off' to the author for his industry and grasp of the subject matter Pennant, the magazine of the Forces Pension Society
