Hull argues that the exercises and practices of the Imperial German military, unchecked via powerful civilian associations, more and more sought absolutely the destruction of its enemies because the in basic terms warrantly of the nation's defense. So deeply embedded have been the assumptions and systems of this distinctively German army tradition that the military, in its force to annihilate the enemy army, didn't slash from the utter destruction of civilian estate and lives. Carried to its severe, the good judgment of "military necessity" came upon genuine safeguard in basic terms in extremities of destruction, within the "silence of the graveyard."

Hull starts with a dramatic account, in accordance with clean archival paintings, of the German Army's slide from administrative homicide to genocide in German Southwest Africa (1904–7). the writer then strikes again to 1870 and the conflict that inaugurated the Imperial period in German historical past, and analyzes the genesis and nature of this particularly German army tradition and its operations in colonial struggle. within the First global struggle the exercises perfected within the colonies have been visited upon ecu populations. Hull makes a speciality of one set of situations (Belgium and northern France) during which the transition to overall destruction used to be checked (if slightly) and on one other (Armenia) within which "military necessity" brought on Germany to just accept its ally's genocidal regulations even after those grew to become militarily counterproductive. She then turns to the Endkampf (1918), the German normal Staff's plan to accomplish victory within the nice struggle whether the fatherland have been destroyed within the process―a possible insane crusade that completes the good judgment of this deeply institutionalized set of army workouts and practices. Hull concludes by means of speculating at the function of this designated army tradition in nationwide Socialism's army and racial policies.

Absolute Destruction has critical implications for the character of warmaking in any glossy strength. At its middle is a caution concerning the blindness of bureaucratic exercises, specifically whilst these bureaucracies command the tools of mass death.
