In this volume, Professor Rudin has given us a sound, carefully documented history of how the Armistice came about. His work appears at a most opportune moment when there is every advantage to be won by learning from past mistakes. The record, as he exposes it on the basis of abundant documentation, thoroughly punctures the German claim that the Kaiser's Army was defeated, not in the field, but by the homeland's "stab in the back."
