Der Wahrheit Eine Gasse and Memoirs

By Franz Von Papen and Franz Von Papen
List and Dutton, 1952
677,634 pp. $6.50

Franz von Papen, whose ability to survive perhaps excels that of the Abbé Sieyès, here reviews his lengthy career with a marked sense of righteousness and few twinges. Although the book is one of the more important and readable of the German memoirs to appear since the war, as a historical document it must be checked carefully with the other evidence bearing on the critical episodes of von Papen's career. Some of the material relating to his early years is omitted from the English translation, which, however, contains a criticism of certain passages in the Bullock biography of Hitler.
