Excellent study on the roots and origins of Nazism, tracing all the way back to the end of the 30 Years War and the Peace of Westphalia, with the birth of the nation states . . . which led to nationalism . . . which then led to romanticism . . . which then led to Nazism . . . Viereck makes compelling arguments in a well written study. A must-read for history buffs!
