Phantom Victory
Phantom Victory
By Erwin Lessner
Putnam, 1944, 227 pp.

A former Austrian officer, more recently a military commentator in America, constructs an imaginative account of the chain of events by which German world power will finally be won by 1960 despite all our proud boasts. Though the story could hardly be expected to unroll in the exact detail predicted by Major Lessner, the broad outlines of this method by which the German military caste might "win the peace" is anything but incredible.
