A noted World War I scholar examines the critical decisions and events that led to Germany's defeat, arguing that the German loss was caused by collapse at home as well as on the front.

· Argues that Germany's defeat was caused by a complex interplay of domestic, social, and economic forces as well as by military and diplomatic factors

· Integrates the internal problems the German people experienced with Germany's defeats at sea and on land

· Highlights the critical role played by Britain and the United States in bringing about Germany's defeat

· Discusses the failures of German military planning and the failure of the nation's political leaders and military leaders to understand that war is the continuation of diplomacy by other means
