Mr. Swing is generally regarded as having shown himself the best-informed of the American radio commentators who covered the crisis leading up to the war. In this book he has gathered the texts of his broadcasts from the German invasion of Czecho-Slovakia in March 1939 to the outbreak of war on September 3. Mr. Swing makes no pretense that he has written definitive history; yet his collected broadcasts form a remarkably sound appraisal of six months of crisis.
