The Eve of 1914
The Eve of 1914
By Theodor Wolff
Knopf, 1936, 655 pp.

Easily one of the most interesting as well as one of the most instructive books dealing with the prewar period. The author was for many years editor of the Berliner Tageblatt, and it is safe to say that few persons had a more intimate contact with men and events over so long a time. Herr Wolff is above all a cosmopolitan, a man of learning and taste. His volume is beautifully written, full of reflection, and must be given one of the first places in any library of modern memoirs.
