 The Kaiserreich Factbook
For Ludendorff, the morale situation in Germany was not at all good in 1917, aside from the economic costs the war had had on German society, the society itself was struggling to cope with such large changes to itself, and war weariness was settling in.
Ludendorff also worried about the influence that political parties would have on his “patriotic instruction” and worked to ensure that their own political papers were suppressed in order to maintain morale.
Ludendorff’s ultimate failing was that he could not see war weariness for what it really was, instead viewing it as something propagated by unloyal elements within German society, rather than the honest frustration with the sacrifices and material conditions that the war had enforced on German society.
