Product Overview

In Weimar Germany and under the Third Reich, views on class, war, masculinity, and social deviance were shaped by debates about?but not with?the survivors of the World War I. This volume uses previously unexplored first-person accounts in order to focus on the traumatized German war veterans, following these vulnerable members of society forward in history and examining their marginalization within their own nation, as well as their authentic memory of the Great War. Crouthamel situates his exploration of the veterans? words and world in the contemporary field of trauma studies, revealing a previously hidden vein of protest against the Nazi institutions and official memory of the time and exposing the universal problems faced by societies coping with war and the politics of the veterans? long-term care.
