In the exhibition catalog for Ferdinand Friedrich von Nicolai (1990), Hohrath's contributions on the biography of the general and military writer and "The Education of the Officier in the 18th Century" were particularly well received in professional circles .

The British historian Peter H. Wilson (later holder of the Oxford Chichele Chair for War History ) paid tribute to the transition of Swabian imperial cities from emperor to sovereign . The work of Hohrath in particular represents a brilliant introduction to the broad spectrum of literature on the Swabian cities and their place in the imperial constitution. Hamburg historian Jutta Nowosadtko described the entire work in a review as “solid documentation and [as] at the same time [. .] interesting introduction to the complex topic ”. Wilson attested the 2005 volume Between Sun and Half Moon. The Türkenlouis as a baroque prince and general to be well illustrated and informative. In 2008, Hohrath published with Neitzel in the military history series War in the history of the publishing house Ferdinand Schöningh u. a. anthology praised in the Süddeutsche Zeitung .
