Warlimont's memoirs

Post by CNE503 » 09 Jun 2019 21:00


I'm currently reading Warlimont's memoirs, Inside Hitler's Headquarters.
What do you think about this book? It seems to have great details and accuracy regarding the staff problems, so I consider it a very good book (especially for a staff officer!). But was Warlimont credible speaking of Hitler? Or was he overcharging about his former N+3 (above Jodl and Keitel) because it was fancy in the 60s for former German generals (trying to explain their defeat because of Hitler and only because of him - which everyone knows now not to be the truth)?

Thank you for your opinions.
