During and after the war Mr. Clissold was admirably situated to observe events and personages in Jugoslavia, and he tells here some that is old and not a little that is new about the Chetnik movement, the rise of Tito's Partisans and the social upheaval they accomplished. One could only wish that he had made a clearer distinction between what he knows and, for example, the interesting thoughts which he presumes are passing through the minds of his chief characters at various times.
