De Staline à Hitler
De Staline à Hitler
By Robert Coulondre
Hachette, 1950, 334 pp

The French Ambassador in Moscow from November 1936 to October 1938, and then in Berlin until the outbreak of war, has written an extremely valuable and informative volume of memoirs. Of particular interest is his account of the crumbling of the Franco-Soviet pact, France's reluctance to give it military teeth, and the obvious Soviet threat, after the Munich crisis, of a fourth Polish partition.
