Another link in the chain, another brick in the wall, another book in the series
23 March 2017

Oxford University Press has published volume 8 of Germany and the Second World War, translated from the German original. The Eastern Front, 1943-1944: The War in the East and on the Neighbouring Fronts, edited by Karl-Heinz Frieser and amounting to more than 1000 pages, returns to the conduct of military campaigns after the two parts of volume 9 (published out of order) detoured into ideological, political, security, and social organization of the state. However you arrange it, this mammoth series is an important addition to the literature of World War II, representing as it does the closest approximation of an official German history of the war.
