By Erich Ludendorff
Ludendorff bezeichnete mit „totaler Krieg“ den Vorrang des Krieges vor der Politik. Ludendorff zog in diesem Buch den Schluss, dass die „seelische Geschlossenheit“ des Volkes einen kriegsentscheidenden Faktor darstelle. Aus diesem Grund müsse alles geschehen, damit diese Geschlossenheit erreicht und erhalten werden kann. Dazu gehöre, das Volk über den Sinn und Zweck des Krieges aufzuklären. Gegenüber Kriegsgegnern, die die Einheit und Geschlossenheit in Frage stellen können, könnten Maßnahmen wie Schutzhaft notwendig sein. Als Kriegsgegner wurden von Ludendorff das Judentum, die Katholische Kirche und die Sozialisten benannt.
