By Arnold Toynbee and Veronica M. Toynbee
Oxford University Press (for the Royal Institute of International Affairs), 1958, 744 pp

This volume in the valuable series of the Survey of International Affairs covering the war years deals with the five and a half months between the German occupation of Bohemia and Moravia on March 15, 1939, and the outbreak of the Second World War. Making use of the postwar publication of the German and British Foreign Office documents, it provides a thorough and authoritative sequel to its predecessor in this series, "The World in March 1939."
