Synopsis

This book explores the making of British policy toward Germany in the aftermath of its defeat in the Great War. Newton shows how British pressures on Germany during the formative months of the new republic were crucial in debilitating the German Revolution and the faltering Weimar democracy. He reveals the inner workings of British policy-making and shows how domestic political priorities triumphed over the expert opinion of intelligence "moderates," with ominous consequences for the fate of German democracy and the rest of Europe.
