Manstein : Hitler's greatest general / Mungo Melvin

Publication | Library Call Number: DD247.M3 M45 2010x
Book cover

"The life of Field Marshal Erich von Manstein is the story of a doomed generation: the generals who claimed they fought for Germany, not for Hitler. Like Albert Speer, the polished, urbane Manstein was no uncouth Nazi. The ablest product of the German general staff, he impressed foes and friends alike. Charged with war crimes, his case was taken up by the British historian Liddell Hart. He was sentenced to 18 years, but released after three and went on to advise the West German government on founding its new army within NATO" --Cover, p. 2.
