A bitter indictment of Russia's Balkan policy and the Western Allies ""betrayal"" of Balkan democracy. He charges that the democratic powers permitted the liquidation of democratic leaders and brought reaction into power with leaders under Soviet patronage. That Russia is a totalitarian state engaged in a process of expansion. He recalls Balkan history of the past few years; he defends Mihailovich, the British policy in Greece, etc. He proposes the revival of the idea of a federation of small nations. The validity of his anti-Soviet theme depends on facts to which we have no access, as this patently one-sided book can only be viewed as the impressions of an individual sent to the Balkans to help anti-Nazi resistance groups.
