War Stories: The Search for a Usable Past in the Federal Republic

Robert G. Moeller powerfully conveys the advanced tale of the way West Germans recast the new previous after the second one international conflict. He rejects previous characterizations of a postwar West Germany ruled by means of attitudes of "forgetting" or silence concerning the Nazi previous. He as a substitute demonstrates the "selective remembering" that came about between West Germans in the course of the postwar years: specifically, they remembered crimes dedicated opposed to Germans, crimes that—according to a couple modern accounts—were akin to the crimes of Germans opposed to Jews.

Churchill brought in Alfred Duff Cooper as Minister of Information, a man 37 38 Britain and the War of Words in Neutral Europe 'choleric in argument and pugnacious in debate'. 3 Duff Cooper had wide government experience, none of which prepared him adequately for the post he would leave after little more than a year 'with a sigh of relief'. His tenure was plagued by internal squabbles, the pains of reorganization, and the indifferent support of the prime minister for whom propaganda held only secondary interest.

The next day he checked in with the Foreign Office and the MOl to whom he reported the negative, sloppy and ineffective manner of the British Army in Aalesund (what was made of this report does not appear in the records), and requested his own immediate return to Northern Norway to carry on with propaganda work. 7 On the whole it was a heroic tale.
