Millis has proved himself a good prophet. Here's hoping he is right once more, for his findings on what is presumably an almost current trip to Europe's capitals are more optimistic as to the chances of peace, than most of his fellow writers. He glimpses Rome, Berlin, Moscow -- his chapter on Hitler's war manoeuvres is the most significant. But one feels that he is possibly hasty in snap judgments, and is doing a bit of ""wishful thinking"", in assuming that the evidence he saw is all the evidence, or even enough of the evidence to indicate unreadiness and unwillingness for war. However, Preface to War and The Nartial Spirit do not suggest a tendency to snap judgments, so he conveys a sense of optimistic security.
