Book description
Interviews and memories of persons of import during a time in history when even small changes in a persons views could effect entire nations. Several visits to Hitler show his changing policies and convictions and as the author attests "Even Dictators talk quite differently to an oridanary woman than they do to Ministers and Diplomats!" And she interviewed them all: Stalin, Roosevelt, Haile Selassie, Mussolini, Henry Ford, Goering, Horthy, Queen Wilhelmina, Ataturk and many others are included. Ms. Forbes is able to give glimpses from behind the curtains into the lives of the men who, at the time, were making war - or striving to prevent it - on four continents.
