Reviews - What do customers think about Hitler's Foreign Policy 1933-1939: The Road to World War II?
The Definitive Work Mar 19, 2007
An assiduously footnoted, comprehensive exploration of all aspects of German foreign policy prior to WWII. As one reviewer said, not casual reading, but top-notch scholarship.
The other (Nazi-apologist/holocaust-denier's) review is simply a lie - the book does not even mention the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand...
Eminent historian's work remains unsurpassed in scope and scholarship Aug 10, 2005
Professor Weinberg's books are generally held in the highest regard among academic historians, and his history of German diplomacy from 1933 through 1939 remains unsurpassed in scope and scholarship. To get a better sense of these books, I would suggest searching for published journal reviews, or even searching the web.
Don't buy this rubbish Jul 21, 2005
It's full of crap and is not historical research as we mere mortals understand it. It's packed full of lies, distortions, falsifications and worse.
Just to quote an example, Weinberg claims that the assasination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand by Serbian terrorist in 1914 was stage managed by the Germans! That all plebiscites held in Germany and Austra since Hitler came to power were rigged! Now that are only some of the most outrageous and ridiculos claims by this German hating moron.
