Hitler's Table Talk, p. xxv.

Today Beumelburg is mostly, and deservedly, forgotten. In the Third Reich, however, his novels regularly ran to editions of 30,000 to 150,000 thousand; the total production of those listed by the Phillip Reclam Verlag of Leipzig in 1939 is over a million. His interest in history and historical myth-making was not confined to the written word, for he was soon appointed to be one of three directors-general of the National Socialist Reich Radio Chamber. Beumelburg's career in Joseph Wulf, Presse und Funk im Dritten Reich and Wulf, Die bildenden Künste im Dritten Reich.

In the Weimar period Beumelburg wrote the afore-mentioned Reichsarchiv monograph Flandern (on Third Ypres), as part of the same series as his Douaumont (on Verdun). He also wrote a Dolchstoss-inspired critique of the Versailles Treaty, Deutschland im Ketten (Germany in Chains).

Where a young Frenchman had an 80 per cent chance of being conscripted, a German had, on average, one chance in two of being called up. Middle-class, often ardently patriotic German males were almost routinely exempted so that they might further professional careers or continue tertiary studies. Also exempted, ironically, were most of the industrial working class, on the grounds that these workers were probably infected by Social Democracy. Indeed, military authorities drew just 6 per cent of conscripts from the cities, where 40 per cent of the population lived. Official statistics by Bernhardi, Next War, pp. 243-44.

Some 800 infantry regiments fought in the Bavarian, Saxon, Württemburg and Prussian divisions that made up the armies of the German empire for the loss of men killed of just under two million, an average of some 2,500 per regiment.
