This chapter discusses the significance of Prussian militarism for Nazi imperialism, arguing that the destruction of Prussian militarism was a crucial problem for the United Nations' psychological warfare against Nazi Germany. The term “Prussian militarism” referred to a definite social and political complex in German society. This complex contained roughly geographical, economic, social, and ideological elements. The chapter first provides an overview of Prussia under German imperialism, under the Weimar Republic, and under Nazi regime before discussing the position of Prussian militarists in the Union of German Officers in Moscow.
