The Austrian ex-Chancellor’s account of the Anschluss of Austria by Hitler. From the cover: “The Anschluss was the opening round of the Second World War. It was in his campaign against Austria, culminating in the cynical Nazi invasion of March 12 1938, that Hitler first tested those techniques of blandishment, provocation and naked aggression with which he later crushed Czechoslovakia, Poland and the Low Countries. Kurt Schuschnigg was Chancellor of Austria from July 1934 until the Nazi invasion, and throughout these years in direct negotiations with Hitler and other Nazi leaders he resisted their overwhelming military and psychological pressures against Austria.”
