Der Autor zeigt mit der Rechtsgeschichte der Reichswehr 1918–1933 das Spannungsverhältnis auf, in dem die Weimarer Republik zum Militär als Ganzem wie auch dem einzelnen Soldaten stand.
Wie und warum die Integration der Streitkräfte in die erste deutsche Republik aus juristischer Perspektive misslang, belegt diese archivalisch fundierte Rechtsgeschichte der Reichswehr erstmals anhand verschiedenster Themenfelder wie der Militärstrafjustiz, dem Ehren- sowie dem Disziplinar- und Beschwerderecht. Das überlieferte Bild vom »Staat im Staate« bildete sich rechtlich gesehen in einer Tendenz der Reichswehr zur »Paralegalität« ab.
