Cambridge.University.Press.War.Land.on.the.Eastern.Front.Culture.National.Identity.and.German.Occupation.in.World.War.I.May.2000. This page intentionally left blankWar Land on the Eastern Front is a study of a hidden legacy of World WarI: the experience of German soldiers on the Eastern Front and thelong-term eVects of their encounter with Eastern Europe. It presentsan ‘‘anatomy of an occupation,’’ charting the ambitions and realities ofthe new German military state there. Using hitherto neglected sourcesfrom both occupiers and occupied, oYcial documents, propaganda,memoirs, and novels, it reveals how German views of the Eastchanged during total war. New categories for viewing the East tookroot along with the idea of a German cultural mission in these sup-posed wastelands. After Germany’s defeat, the Eastern Front’s‘‘lessons’’ were taken up by the Nazis, radicalized, and enacted whenGerman armies returned to the East in World War II.
