Aims and Scope
The testimonies by high-ranking military officers collected in this volume constitute a major source document based on the statements of German generals in Soviet custody. While they contain contradictions and inaccuracies, they are not part of the self-justifying public discourse that took place in post-war West Germany. In this way, the book makes a significant contribution to historical research on the history of the Second World War.
