    Can Anyone Recommend Me Any Good Germanic Books?

    Can anyone recommend me any good Germanic books?

    I'm interested in it all but primarily the continental Germanics. I would like a good source to learn more about their religion, values, culture, way of life etc. However, I would like to learn about their history as well.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm not very big on books, but I think everyone who's interested in Germanic heritage should read 'Germania' by Tacitus, which is easily available online for free.

    The writings of Ibn Fadlan on the Volga Vikings is also quite interesting, albeit of a lesser quality.

    Besides Tacitus, there's M.C. Springer and Francis Owen. Julian's essay describes ancient Germans as embracing a love of liberty. In the Misopogon, he describes how he lived among Celts and Germans in the Hercynian forest.

    Which book by M.C. Springer?

    Is "The germanic people: their origin, expansion and culture" the book by Francis Owen?

    This series is good: https://ospreypublishing.com/store/m...ks/men-at-arms

    Just one example of Germanics:



    This book describes and illustrates the armour, weapons, fortifications and ships of one of the least-known phases of the Medieval Crusades - the expeditions by Scandinavian Catholics against the pagan peoples to the east of the Baltic Sea, and their subsequent clashes with the Eastern Orthodox Russian princes of Novgorod and Muscovy. From isolated castles built in this bleak wilderness of forests, lakes and bogs, the small garrisons struggled equally against the enemy and the harsh terrain and climate. The text is illustrated with photographs of rare museum relics and of castles, and spirited colour plates by Angus McBride.

    Germany in the Thirty Years War by Gerhard Benecke

    The Jews and Their Lies by Martin Luther

    Bismark by Alan Palmer

    The Kaiser by Alan Palmer

    Twlight of the Habsburgs by Alan Palmer

    Imperial Berlin by Gerhard Masur

    Hellstorm by Thomas Goodrich, if I was to recommend 1 book on WW II it’s this one.

    Bombing Germany: The Final Phase by Tony Redding

    The Decline of the West by Oswald Spengler, best book, outstanding. What a mind. No great intellect required just a bit of discipline. You can get a hardback containing both volumes for £10 or $12.

    You also have 'Gesta Danorum' by Saxo Grammaticus, a 13th century Danish writer, mainly about the early history of Denmark. I have not read it myself, only excerpts, but it is highly acclaimed by many historians.

    for specialist books like this,

    BookFinder.com will often quote a much better price than Amazon.

    If you are talking about the pre-Christian Germanics, the publications of Jan de Vries would be good start. Alto I do not know if they have been translated in to English. So the ability to read German and Netherlandic would be vital if you decide to read/study his works.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
