Germany and the Next War
by F. Von Bernhardi
This is not a history book , but rather, a treatise on Prussian militarism published only a few years before the outbreak of the First World War. Written by one of the leading generals of the Prussian army it lays out the case for German military aggression in calm, reasoned, and "scientific" terms, justifying the expansion of the Prussian empire in terms of the inevitability of military conflict, Darwinian laws of nature, the superiority of the German race, and a progressive vision for the advancement of humankind. Many of the tenets of Berhardi's thesis are now rejected by Western intelligencia, but Prussia was widely admired by secular intellectuals in the pre-war era precisely for its boldness in advocating such "pragmatic" and "scientific" policies.
