Sista Försöket. London-Berlin, Sommaren 1939
By Birger Dahlerus
Norstedt, 1945, 225 pp.

Dahlerus, a Swedish manufacturer, involved himself in the negotiations between Berlin and London on the eve of World War II. As a friend of Goering, he acted as an ineffectual emissary between Berlin and London. His account, despite its naïveté, has a certain historical value. A lengthy analysis of its "revelations," and how they dovetail with other accounts of those feverish days (including Dahlerus' own statements at the Nuremberg Trial), will be found in The Times Literary Supplement (London) for May 25, 1946.
