Weimar and Wheeler-Bennett

  • A. L. Rowse


Though, I suppose I should place the second book first, as more general, Wheeler-Bennett’s book1 makes a better introduction to the subject for English and American readers. It is utterly riveting, at any rate all the German half of it. He had a front-seat view of what was going on under the Weimar Republic and in the first years of Hitler — an entirely private individual, yet with extraordinary sources of information through his German contacts with key-figures. Needless to say, neither his views on the folly of Appeasement, nor his exceptionally accurate information, were taken any notice of by Chamberlain, Halifax and the gang who, in the event, ruined their country.
