The Fatal Decisions: Six decisive battles of the Second World War from the viewpoint of the vanquished. William Richardson & Seymour Freidin, editors.  London: Michael Joseph, 1956, 1st Edition.

Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 261pp.

This is the 1956 First Edition which has a great pull- out maps. Excellent book for any serious military collection. The Fatal Decisions consists of six essays by high-ranking German generals (Kreipe, Blumentritt, Bayerlein, Zeitzler, Zimmerman, and Manteuffel) reflecting on the campaigns in which they participated and assessing the reasons for their defeat at the hands of the Allies. A fair amount of Hitler-blaming, but these are sensible men (see especially Zeitzler’s account of Stalingrad). Fold-out maps for each chapter are in mint condition. Introduction by Cyril Falls. Translated by Constantine Fitz Gibbon. Gilt lettering on the spine is crisp and bright. A lovely copy, clean and unmarked.

Here are the complete stories of the six decisive European battles of World War II — told by the German generals who lost them.
