This unusual and incisive account chronicles Germany in World War I from the viewpoint of soldiers who fought the battles and civilians who endured the ever-increasing trauma of escalating casualties, widespread shortages, and declining conditions of living. It relates how Germany attempted to cope with a massive blockade, the scope of which had not been seen since the days of Napoleon, thus forcing German authorities to adopt a series of sometimes innovative, sometimes brutal measures, all of which rested on the underlying premise that victory, a clear-cut victory, could be the only acceptable option.

Victory Must Be Ours explores the Germany which in 1914 took a precipitous leap into darkness.

It explores the ingredients which made the Great War perhaps the single most fateful event of the Twentieth Century, setting in motion the most bloody conflict of all time, World War II.
