World In Trance

£6.99

Product description

The author, Leopold Schwarzschild, writes about the period of the Armistice between 1918-1939. He left Germany in 1933 to establish 'Das Neue Tagebuch' in Paris. This review with its accurate and copious information about German re-armament was a source of great annoyance to the Nazis. Herr Schwarzschild was not impressed by the pacific face of Germany. Nor could he convince himself that peace could be preserved by good intentions, by the declarations "outlawing" war, or by a League of Nations having neither the will nor the means to fulfil its proper function. He could see the unregenerate spirit of German militarism coolly bidding its time until it could emerge in the form of Hitler. Here he tells the heartbreaking story as he saw it, not bitterly but with a remorseless lucidity and an irony that is, after all, inherent in the facts.
Published in 1943, this is a May 1944 reprint. There is foxing and sunning. The DJ is torn. A very readable copy. A must for historians. Foreword by D.W. Brogan. Translated from German by Norbert Guterman.
