This is a study of the Prussian-German General Staff system and its influence on the Bundeswehr. In addition to being a solid contemporary analysis of this key characteristic of successive German military structures, it contributes to the understanding of a little known aspect of an important ally's military. Professor Donald Abenheim, a well-respected expert on the Bundeswehr, has provided a foreword explaining the importance of the General Staff in the German Army, as well as its strong historical influence in U.S. military thinking.
