Whirlwind: an Account of Marshal Tito's Rise to Power
Whirlwind: an Account of Marshal Tito's Rise to Power
By Stephen Clissold
Philosophical Library, Cresset Press, 1950, 245 pp.

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.
