Franz Halder Diaries
Franz Halder, Chief of the General Staff of the Supreme Command of the Army of Germany (1939-1942), kept a personal war diary concerning conferences, staff talks, and lectures. Between 1939 and 1941 the entries take the form of notes, but after 1941 they become more personal in nature, creating a more well rounded diary. Both the French and Russian campaigns are discussed as they evolved. The diary is a typescript of an English translation.
