By  George Coppedge This review is from: All the Kaiser's Men: The Life and Death of the German Army on the Western Front 1914-1918  (Paperback)   This book provides a refreshing perspective of the history of the Western Front. The author, Ian  Passingham, describes the efforts and travails of the Imperial German Army from the assault on  Liege to the November armistice in 1918. He describes an organization that in 1914 was far  superior to its enemies in personnel, tactics, and equipment. However, its top military leadership,  vested progressively in Moltke, Falkenhayn, and finally Ludendorff, fatally undermined its  chances of ultimate success against the Western Allies. The problem seems to have been a  recurrent streak of indecisiveness at the most critical moments. And millions of their own men and  their enemies would pay the price in death and blood.
