Against Two Evils
Against Two Evils
By Hans von Herwarth with S. Frederick Starr
Rawson, Wade, 1981, 318 pp

A most readable autobiographical account of a German diplomat in Moscow in the 1930s, turned officer during the war. He had sympathy for neither evil-Nazism nor communism-and understood how much the two systems converged. As an anti-Nazi, he drew close to the military resistance against Hitler. A book of adventure rather than analysis, but full of interesting historic details and aperçus.
