This was published first in England, and already the advent of war negates a great deal of the commentary on the tangled, turbulent Europe of today. In addition, his own personal prejudices (he is somewhat anti-red, anti-semitic) distort his views of contemporary Europe. One by one he discusses the countries he has recently visited, Russia, Germany, Italy, the Balkans, Spain, and the various revolutions. He is kinder to Germany and Herr Hitler and Italy than he is to Russia. He sees no single benefit under the Soviet banner. He interprets war in Spain as precipitated by Communism atrocities. His views of the line-up of the powers is completely off the track. All in all, Mr. Yeats-Brown reads like a near-Fascist commentator with a red-baiting obsession.
