An exceedingly interesting picture of the struggle within the English family of diplomats, of wire pulling, face saving in France, of the bungling of the past ten years.

She gives clear insight into leading diplomatic personalities that are responsible for today's crisis. A good running story of the crises of the last five years, under the shadow of the League of Nations.
