This volume is an immortal contribution to the history of the years immediately preceding the outbreak of the second World War: the years that saw the tragedies of Abyssinia, Austria and Spain, ominous developments in the Far East as well as in the Mediterranean, and the climax of Munich and the subsequent rape of Czechoslovakia. Mr. Churchill's articles analysing and discussing these and many other events made a profound and disquieting impression at the time of their first appearance, but they now gain immeasurably in significance, since they can be read in the context of the events which were then veiled from our sight. 350pp. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
