The battleships of the Third Reich have been written about exhaustively, but there is little in English devoted to their predecessors of the Second Reich. This new book fills an important gap in the literature of the period by covering these German capital ships in detail and studying the full span of battleship development during this period. The book is arranged as a chronological narrative, with technical details, construction schedules and ultimate fates tabulated throughout, thus avoiding the sometimes disjointed structure that can result from a class-by-class approach. Heavily illustrated with line work and photographs, many from German sources, the book offers readers a fresh visual look at these ships, beyond the limited range of images available from UK sources. A key objective of the book is to make available a full synthesis of the published fruits of archival research by German writers found in the pre-WW2 books of Koop & Schmolke, Großmer’s on the construction programme of the dreadnaught era, Forstmeier & Breyer on WW1 projects, and Schenk & Nottelmann’s papers in Warship International. As well as providing data not available in English-language books, these sources correct significant errors in the ‘standard’ English sources. This entirely fresh study will appeal to historians of WWI German naval developments as well as to enthusiasts and model makers.

Von wahnwitzigem aGriff nach der Weltmachto bis reaktionarem, antiparlamentarischem aSozialimperialismuso reicht die Palette der Intentionen, die in der Forschung als ausschlaggebend fuer den Bau einer deutschen Schlachtflotte gesehen werden. Christian Rodel laat in seiner detaillierten Studie die Marineexperten zu Wort kommen, die den Aufbau der Hochseeflotte aus erster Hand miterlebten und kommentierten, auf deren Arbeit aber auch der hinter ihm stehende Gedankeninhalt gruendete. Rodel leistet damit eine lange vermiate Verankerung der Tirpitzschen strategischen Vorstellungen im militarisch-kulturellen Hintergrund seiner Zeit, ohne die alle weitergehenden Interpretationen des Flottenbaues auf einer unsicheren Basis stehen muaten, und setzt sich differenziert mit einer Historiographie auseinander, die die Schlagworte der Flottenpropaganda unkritisch uebernahm oder apriorisch verwarf, ohne sie auf ihren zeitgebundenen Bedeutungsinhalt zu ueberpruefen. "Rodel makes a strong contribution to the bibliography of German naval development on the eve of the First World War. He provides a solid foundation for understanding the strategic concepts used by Tirpitz to justify the development of Germany's High-Seas Fleet before the outbreak of war in 1914." International Journal of Maritime History "a important and provocativea" The International History Review .

At the end of the Second World War, the first unified German state collapsed, a disintegration with European and global ramifications. Ever since, historians have sought to explain what went wrong in German history. Many have focused on the violence which forged unification; others have highlighted the clash of authoritarian, anti-democratic, and anti-Semitic traditions with rapid industrialization and modernization. Germany, 1871-1945 presents a pragmatic interpretation of German history, from the unification to the end of the Nazi regime. This more open approach acknowledges the strong trend in German society towards modernization and democratization, particularly before 1914, while also highlighting the factors which propelled Germany toward World War I. The rise of the Nazis also demands a close analysis of the economic and political instability of the 1920s and early 1930s. Finally, a detailed assessment of the Third Reich explains how the regime's early successes fostered a loyalty and acceptance that remained hard to shake until disaster was obvious and unavoidable.

The German Empire was founded in January 1871 not only on the basis of Chancellor Otto von Bismarck's 'blood and iron' policy but also with the support of liberal nationalists. Under Bismarck and Kaiser Wilhelm II, Germany became the dynamo of Europe. Its economic and military power were pre-eminent; its science and technology, education, and municipal administration were the envy of the world; and its avant-garde artists reflected the ferment in European culture. But Germany also played a decisive role in tipping Europe's fragile balance of power over the brink and into the cataclysm of the First World War, eventually leading to the empire's collapse in military defeat and revolution in November 1918. With contributions from an international team of twelve experts in the field, this volume offers an ideal introduction to this crucial era, taking care to situate Imperial Germany in the larger sweep of modern German history, without suggesting that Nazism or the Holocaust were inevitable endpoints to the developments charted here.
