The Enigma of Admiral Darlan
The Enigma of Admiral Darlan
By Alec De Montmorency
Dutton, 1943, 194 pp.

This book was apparently conceived as a justification for our utilization of Darlan in North Africa and doubtless later in France, had he lived. The author, who writes under a pseudonym, is frankly an admirer of Darlan and an apologist for his tortuous policy. The discerning reader will readily discount the praise heaped on the Admiral, for the author clearly has an underlying anti-democratic bias. The danger is that many may accept the author's sincerity and thus his point of view.
