KIRKUS REVIEW

A timely book, not in its description of conditions in Germany today -- or even last Spring -- but rather in the background it gives for better understanding of what made present conditions inevitable and possible. Toller grew up in Southern Germany and tells here of his boyhood, his schooling, his war experiences, from which he emerged a Socialist and pacifist, his imprisonment and exile for activities in these directions, his leadership of communistic activities in Bavaria, and his share in the short-lived communistic government in Munich. Read in conjunction with Hutchinson's THE UNFORGOTTEN PRISONER, it makes the ghastly period of Germany's Civil War more comprehensible.
