Thanks for that Seajane. I sometimes find the online free libraries very difficult to search. That is a handy one stop shop. 

 

One title caught my eye - "Germany and the Next War" by Friedrich von Bernhardi.

 

Written in 1911!!!

   The Bernhardi is a standard "doom and gloom" book of the pre-war years- It used to be quite common in second-hand bookshops years ago- obviously a 2 minute sensation then remaindered. It carried "authority" because of Bernhardi's position. Izzy Clarke's book "Voices Prophesying War" is still the best guide to the subject.

They are indeed all free on Gutenberg, but the temptation to have an actual copy of some virtual treasure is very real!

 

I hope the list proves as useful as it looks.

Thanks seaJane, wish that archive.org would do a similar bookshelf listing.

Sadly the URL given above doesn't seem to be working in the UK either at present - will try again later.
