 About the Book 

I actually read the Kindle version of this book. In fact, I published the Kindle version, which has an updated introduction and footnotes.Ernie Pope was an American correspondent working for Reuters in Munich in the years leading up to WWII. This book was published in 1941, at a time when Hitler and his hordes had conquered nearly all of Europe and seemed like fanatical, ascetic supermen.Pope saw them for what they were: corrupt, degenerate thugs.Unlike most books of the period, Popes book is decidedly irreverent and in places laugh-out-loud funny. But his frustration and ire at the Nazis comes through as well.For anyone interested in the period of the rise of the Third Reich, this is a wonderful account by someone who was there.http://www.amazon.com/Munich-Playgrou...
