  • Reforging the Iron Cross: The Search for Tradition in the West German Armed Forces By: Donald Abenheim Recent controversies about Ronald Reagan's visit to the Bitburg military cemetery and revelations about Kurt Waldheim's past underscored the political problems inherent in Germany's military traditions and in the relationship of the army to National Socialism. The Allied victors disbanded the German armed forces after World War II, only to press for the arming of the Federal Republic of Germany under the altered political conditions of the cold war. This book is the first comprehensive narrative and analysis of the efforts of German military professionals to discover for their new army an acceptable body of tradition in the proud, ambiguous, and at times criminal history of the German soldier.
  • Rettet den Staatsburger in Uniform! By: Donald Abenheim Im Mittelpunkt des Sammelbandes steht der »Staatsbürger in Uniform« und gleichzeitig die Sorge um diese Institution. Die Sorge gilt dem Inbegriff für eine zivil-militärische Kultur, die in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland und in den Vereinigten Staaten dazu beigetragen hat, die Streitkräfte in der Demokratie zu verankern. Die einzelnen Beiträge analysieren aus unterschiedlicher Perspektive, dabei mit einem besonderen Augenmerk auf die Traditionsproblematik, welchen Anfechtungen diese Kultur und ein entsprechendes soldatisches Selbstverständnis diesseits und jenseits des Atlantiks ausgesetzt waren. Sie zeigen, wie beides unter den Bedingungen der »neuen Kriege« der letzten Jahrzehnte, mit ihren erheblichen innenpolitischen Rückwirkungen, Schaden nimmt – zum Schaden für die Demokratie insgesamt. Die Analyse beruht auf der langjährigen und intimen Kenntnis der Autoren von den politisch-militärischen Verhältnissen in Deutschland wie in den Vereinigten Staaten.
