Description

This volume covers a period in the history of the German army in which machine guns, airplanes, and weapons of mass destruction were first developed and used. Eric Brose examines the industrial development of machinery and its application to infantry, cavalry, and artillery tactics. He examines the modernity versus anti-modernity debate that raged after the Franco-Prussian war, arguing that the residue of years of resistance to technological change seriously undermined the German army during World War I.
