Abstract:

The German Socialists SPD, the backbone of the Second International, joined fellow socialists in the vow that never again would worker face worker over bayonets. As August of 1941 approached, however, the pull of nation proved to be stronger than class feelings, and German, Russian, British, French and Austrian workers marched off to join the colors with enthusiasm. Despite the intervening half century, nationalism remains today a very strong emotion. Author
