The author uses an entertaining, readable format to describe the rise of militarism in Prussia.

It concludes with a brief analysis of militarism in Germany and a comment on the fate of common Prussian soldiers in peace and in war. This book serves as an introductory text. It will be highly appropriate for a variety of disciplines, including history, political science, and sociology.
