Between Hitler and Mussolini
Between Hitler and Mussolini
By Ernst Rüdiger Prince Starhemberg
Harper, 1942, 281 pp

Considering the important rôle played by Prince Starhemberg in the postwar history of Central Europe this is a disappointing book. Some of its omissions and distortions are due, as the Prince himself intimates, to the fact that it was "dictated but not read." Yet, despite its blemishes, it is an historical document of considerable value for the light it throws on the machinations of Hitler and Mussolini in Austria. One has but to read this book to understand the utterly irreconcilable interests of Germany and Italy.
