Britain Faces Germany
Britain Faces Germany
By A. L. Kennedy
Oxford University Press, 1937, 194 pp

A well-written, thoughtful little book by a former member of the London Times editorial staff. Mr. Kennedy weighs the foreign policy of his own country and of Hitler, and finds them both wanting in several particulars. He would like peace with Germany and he is willing to consider transferring the West African mandated areas to German tutelage. But he warns that Britain must be prepared to face war "if Hitler will not accept a just and honourable settlement," and adds: "If the Nazi system is to be made a scourge to humanity, we must oppose it to the end, as we opposed Napoleon until his power to do harm was destroyed."
