This is the galvanizing account of a centuries-old German dynasty that made weapons for generations of German leaders, including Hitler, and wielded a huge influence on world events. In this narrative of extraordinary richness, depth, and authority, America's preeminent biographer/historian explored the German national character as no other writer has done.

The Arms of Krupp brings to life Europe's wealthiest, most powerful family, a four-hundred-year German dynasty that developed the world's most technologically advanced weapons, from cannons to submarines to anti-aircraft guns; provided arms to generations of German leaders, including the kaiser and Hitler; operated private concentration camps during the Nazi era; survived conviction at Nuremberg; and wielded enormous influence on the course of world events.

William Manchester's galvanizing account of the rise and fall of the Krupp dynasty is history as it should be written -- alive with all its terrifying power.
