Our War Aims

By Wickham Steed
Secker and Warburg, 1939
215 pp. $3.00

The general thesis underlying this book roughly parallels that of Mr. Cole's pamphlet. Mr. Steed wants a clearer statement of Britain's war aims and, after the war, some sort of a federation of free peoples in which the national states have surrendered some of their sovereignty. After examining the rise and nature of Hitlerism at some length he concludes that it cannot be obliterated merely by removing Hitler. The problem of German freedom, he says, can be solved only by the German people themselves.
