Percy Ernst Schramm, one of Germany's most distinguished historians, had exceptional insight into Hitler's headquarters while acting as War Diary Office of the High Command of the German Armed Forces. This classic volume, long out of print, contains the introductions written by Schramm to critical editions of Hitler's Table Talk and the official War Diary of the High Command of the Wehrmacht. In addition, there are two appendices: the first consisting of excerpts from a study composed by Schramm for the Nuremberg Trials on relations between Hitler and the General Staff; the second a memorandum written by General Jodl in 1946 on Hitler's military leadership.

About the Author:

Percy Ernst Schramm (1894-1970), one of Germany’s most distinguished historians, was author of over two dozen books and scores of articles. He became a professor at Goettingen University in 1929, the year of publication of his Kaiser, Rom und Renovatio, a landmark study in the interpretation of medieval political symbolism and ideology, a field on which he concentrated throughout the 1930s. An English translation of one of his works from this period, A History of the English Coronation, was published in 1937 by Oxford University Press. During the Second World War, Schramm was ordered to Hitler’s headquarters as War Diary Officer of the High Command of the German Armed Forces, a position that afforded him unique insight into the dictator’s military leadership and his frequently bitter conflicts with his generals. Having disobeyed the order to destroy the war diary at the end of the war, he was able to publish it in four volumes in the 1960s, together with a detailed introductory essay on Hitler as a military leader. In 1963 he also published a scholarly edition of Hitler’s table talks with an extensive introductory essay on Hitler the man. English translations of these two essays appeared in 1971 in a volume entitled Hitler: The Man and the Military Leader that was reprinted in 1999.Donald S. Detwiler, professor of history at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, received his doctorate cum laude at Goettingen. He is chairman of the World War Two Studies Association and a council member and past president of the Association for the Bibliography of History. Detwiler's publications include Hitler, Franco und Gibraltar, an annotated translation of Percy E. Schramm's Hitler: The Man and the Military Leader, the documentary collection World War II German Military Studies (24 volumes), and, with Ilse E. Detwiler, an annotated bibliography, West Germany: The Federal Republic of Germany.

Detwiler, who earned his doctorate cum laude at Goettingen University under Professor Schramm, is professor emeritus of history at Southern Illinois at Carbondale, past Chairman of the World War Two Studies Association, and past president of the Association for the Bibliography of History.

Detwiler, an annotated bibliography, West Germany: The Federal Republic of Germany (1987).
