Pease, a former officer of the United States Army and a writer for a number of American magazines, expresses here apprehension with regard to both the internal structure of the Third Reich and Hitler’s foreign policies. Pease contends that the Nazi structure of Hitler’s domain merely shelters huge masses of Communists. Pease describes the bitterness of Nazis in Germany towards America. “The Vaterland,” Pease writes, “itself is a country of overgrown kindergartners who look upon the nations around them as but blocks to play with, never mind the blood, and damn the consequences. Germans have more intellectual intolerance than any other tribe on earth. They are of the fearful breed which is ‘always right.’ Their very sneers are ex cathedra.”
