A Thousand Shall Fall
A Thousand Shall Fall

This is one of the most dramatic and revealing of the books of personal experience yet to come out of the war. A young anti-Nazi Hungarian journalist and novelist who served in the French Army as a Foreign Volunteer, was captured during the Blitzkrieg, and finally escaped to America, paints a vivid and depressing picture of the disorganization, defeatism and demoralization at and behind the Western Front.
