As early as 1941, Allied victory in World War II seemed all but assured. How and why, then, did the Germans prolong the barbaric conflict for three and a half more years? In "The German War," acclaimed historian Nicholas Stargardt draws on an extraordinary range of primary source materials personal diaries, court records, and military correspondence to answer this question. He offers an unprecedented portrait of wartime Germany, bringing the hopes and expectations of the German people from infantrymen and tank commanders on the Eastern front to civilians on the home front to vivid life. While most historians identify the German defeat at Stalingrad as the moment when the average German citizen turned against the war effort, Stargardt demonstrates that the Wehrmacht in fact retained the staunch support of the patriotic German populace until the bitter end. Astonishing in its breadth and humanity, "The German War" is a groundbreaking new interpretation of what drove the Germans to fight and keep fighting for a lost cause."
