German State Documents
This collection of German State Documents, collected by Dr. Charles Sidman, History Professor at the University of Kansas, contains copies of books, book chapters, newspaper articles, dissertations and memoirs from archives throughout Germany. The collection contains information concerning World War I through the mid-1920s, including the "Dolchstoss", or "stab-in-the-back" legend. Following the surrender of Germany in 1918, many right-wing groups claimed that the German Army did not lose World War I; rather, they believed the army was betrayed by civilians on the home front, specifically Jews, socialists and liberals.
