Betrayal: The Hitler-Stalin Pact Of 1939

By Wolfgang Leonhard
St. Martin's, 1989
224 pp. $19.95

Fifty years after its signing, the German-Soviet nonaggression pact is highly relevant to contemporary developments, due to its additional secret protocol that allowed the Soviet Union to take control of the Baltic states. Leonhard, an active German communist until he escaped to the West in 1949, focuses on the signing of the agreement in 1939 and the shock waves it sent through the world communist movement.
