Summary

Germany is a popular topic of study for students working towards GCSE. This text covers the main events between the end of the First World War and Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union, and is suitable for both S.H.P. and Modern World History syllabuses. Key questions are used to focus student attention, and excellent coverage is provided of the impact of the Treaty of Versailles, life during the Weimar period, Hitler's rise to power and the influence of the Nazi regime. A wide range of sources and illustrations help set the events of this period in context.
