A gripping narrative, based on the author’s interviews with 24 senior German officers captured at the end of World War II, reveals how a superbly armed and trained body of fighting men could suffer such a calamitous defeat. The prisoners offer candid assessments of German military performance and the nature of the fallen regime, explaining for the first time much that happened during the war and how the German military machine served Hitler well—and the nation badly.

Milton Shulman fought at Normandy as an Intelligence Officer with the Canadian Armoured Corps. After the war he interviewed many of the German Army's most senior generals, whose candid observations on their military performance, and the nature of the regime, form the substance of this book. After the war, Milton Shulman became known as a London theatre and film critic, a writer and novelist, and a political commentator of note. He was latterly editor of the London Evening Standard.
