Germany Rearms 2022: Assessment & Historical Context

Chancellor Scholz announced in a speech on 27th February 2022 what generally is seen as 180 degree turn in German foreign and military policy. Although it is an important step, we also need to take into account past issues and problems that have an influence on any change. As such this video looks at the statements of Scholz, but also the statement about Prof. Neitzel on the History of the Bundeswehr particularly 2014-2017 and broadly the relationship of the German society and the military since 1945. Additionally, we also get a statement from Christoph Bergs (Military Aviation History) about the role of the Bundeswehr in the past.
