The Incompatible Allies
The Incompatible Allies
By Gustav Hilger and Alfred G. Meyer
Macmillan, 1953, 350 pp

Mr. Hilger, who served in the German Embassy in Moscow from 1923 to 1941, has perhaps a uniquely long record of diplomatic experience with the Soviet Union. These memoirs concerning inter-war German-Soviet relations, while containing no great revelations, are quite valuable in illuminating a number of phases of that relationship, especially the Rapallo connection and the strained amicability preceding the onslaught of June 1941.
