 Hitler, Stresemann and the Discontinuity of German Foreign Policy - From History Review
Stresemann became known as ‘Ludendorff’s young man’, for it was General Ludendorff, the virtual dictator of Germany in the last two years of the war, who insisted on fighting on to total victory, a policy which finally ended in total defeat for his exhausted country.
Stresemann's own war-time reputation as an annexationist was such that his determination to remain in politics after 1918 prevented the establishment of a united liberal party.
Stresemann tried to calm these fears by saying that in her hour of weakness German foreign policy had to advance by ‘finesse’ (finassieren), as Metternich had in 1809.
