Description from dust jacket:
Vincent Sheean combines, to an extraordinary degree, sheer literary brilliance and a fine historical sense. Both of these show very plainly in this new book, which is in a sense a personal history of a notorious year: March 1938 to March 1939, as he observed it first hand.
Starting with a survey of England which in itself is one of the most brilliant evocations of the place the British Empire and the British foreign policy hold in world events today that has ever been written, the author surveys the troubled European landscape, throwing a hard, white light on scenes, on incidents and personalities that have not, up to now, been clearly revealed. Spain is here, portrayed with great feeling and sincerity, and the Evian Conference, with all the implications of its tragic refugee problem; and in the chapter “The Triumph of the Swastika” the dark events from Prague to Carlsbad are thrown into uncompromising relief.
