KIRKUS REVIEW

A foreign correspondent of many fronts surveys the European scene, over the past ten years, adds little new to the story of the democracies versus the Axis, but writes with vigor and revealing detail based on personal experience, interviews, etc. The outline is familiar Hitler and his new militarism, Mussolini's parallel, Spain, England under the ""businessman from Birmingham with a retail mind and wholesale problems"", France and her defensive mentality. England's three great men, Russia, the underestimated, America and isolationism. Once America puts isolationism behind her, and England imperialism behind her, the future of democracy is assured.
