An engrossing history of the Teutonic (Germanic) peoples from the time of the rebellion against the Roman Empire under Hermann to the twentieth century.
First defining the Teutons as of North West European origin, Cox takes the reader on a broad brush sweep of the Germanic peoples’ wanderings in Europe and into the New World, and ends it with an optimistic overview of their future.
Along the way, he deals in some detail with the forced conversion of the Germanic peoples to Christianity, which he highlights as an important event in their history.
Written just after the end of the Second World War, Cox also argued for an alliance of the Teutonic peoples in order to prevent another war.
“Not here, or elsewhere, do I set forward a claim that civilization, even modern civilization, is exclusively of Teutonic origin. Not every discoverer of natural law, not every inventor, not every explorer, may have been a true Teuton; but they came, generally, from areas saturated with Teutonic blood.”
