An account of the problems facing German veterans after WWII and
the ways in which they were addressed in the decade following
Germany's defeat. The primary focus is on the major pieces of
veterans' legislation passed in the early years of the German
Federal Republic. Historical context is provided by the first two
chapters and the conclusion, which compares and contrasts the fate
of veterans and their sociopolitical impact on German society
following the two world wars.
