Utterly absorbing reading, and thoroughly deserving the advance enthusiasm. For the first time I have felt that the inner working of the Nazi ideology on a defeated people had been a stimulant and a drug, ruthlessly effective and inevitable. This is the story of a man who was a child in the Royal Cadet School at the time of the first World War, reared in the traditions of Kaiser worship and militarism. Poverty, hunger, unemployment after the war resulted in the Nazi germ taking root. Then a period of study in Switzerland and France opened his eyes, and he returned to preach the new doctrine. The triumph of Hitler forced him to flee from Germany. A thrilling and enlightening account. Dont's miss it.
