BLOOD AND STEEL. PREFACE: ZAHAROFF, the Man of Mystery, aroused the curi osity of a dozen of post-War sensation-seeking pub licists. But the House of Krupp, which could boast the friendship of two German Emperors, its guns making the background for a half - century of mad armament policy, and again doing so by the will of Krupp's new patron, Adolf Hitler, has never yet, throughout the many generations of its existence, been the subject of a genuinely critical history. The fact, though surprising, is by no means accidental. For this firm, surpassing in adroitness of intelligence all its competitors in the armament industry, has success fully camouflaged its activities in a rather novel manner. Several hundred books and pamphlets and more than a thousand scientific papers seem to imply a veritable publicity-mania, which, however, is a stroke of true genius: i. e., concealment of the truth behind a mass of cleverly dished-up data. The author confesses that herein lay the real difficulty of his task. Here was no charitable obscurity in which every ascertained fact could prove a welcome guide to the Unknown. Step by step mountains of paper had to be pushed aside in order that what was essential could be found in spite of thousands of printed pages. And utmost care was taken to investigate and weigh the sources of all information. Definite, undisputed state ments alone could be utilised here. The author, lacking all talent for fiction, did not allow his imagination play in any single instance. He himself retreated behind the facts presented. It is obvious that the association of politics and busi ness, steel and the destiny of nations, revealed in these pages is not to be considered peculiarto the history or the present condition of Germany. Wherever the name Krupp appears, let the Frenchman substitute Schnei der; the Englishman, Vickers; and any other coun try, its corresponding firm. Not out of blind antagonism nor hatred has this criti cism of one phase of German actuality been born. Rather out of sadness; sadness for a kindly but misguided peo ple; for a noble country; and especially for one strip of earth beside the Ruhr which will always remain the Promised Land to the writer.

Flourishing fami lies were wiped out overnight; entire streets, the chroni clers relate, looked like graveyards in their sad deser tion. In the midst of this distracted heap of humanity the wine merchant on Salt Market kept his head. Property and money had lost their meaning for most of those who survived, but he made the best of death and pur chased for a few dialers extensive gardens and ...
