6 Introduction Historians have been discussing the question of a change in the functions of the military in an industrialized war: the ﬁndings of the present volume, with its supporting sources, provide new stimuli in this area. e. with an integrated overall study of all factors vital to the state’s offensive and defensive warfare. Such exceptions as the Third Supreme Army Command in the ﬁnal phase of the First World War or Groener’s reﬂections under the special conditions of the latter years of the Weimar Republic merely conﬁrm the rule that the military leadership perceived its task predominantly to lie in the area of directing a ‘weapons war’.
The fact that time and again certain lessons from the First World War are seen as development-determining factors reinforces a tendency, already present in historical research, to view and interpret the span of the two world wars in the ﬁrst half of our century as a unity. In political historiography this aspect, in so far as it is concerned with the position of Europe and its states in the world, has long been a matter of course. Military historiography suggests that the same analysis can advantageously be applied to the interpretation of numerous domestic-policy and economic-policy problems.
