Excerpt

Ralph Ingersoll gathered the material for this book and wrote it all down in a space of less than five weeks. We have had it printed and published in a space of less than three weeks. Under such circumstances, both the author and the publisher suffer from certain handicaps, but with a story like this to tell, speed is not only important; the urgency of the story is increased by the pressure under which it has appeared. Ralph Ingersoll went to England in October, a month after Hitler's air Blitzkrieg on the British Isles had passed its peak. He stayed there barely two weeks, spending all his time in and near London. He wrote nothing while he was there, but immediately upon his return to America he described what he had seen in a series of articles that appeared in his own paper, PM, and in other newspapers throughout the country. This book reproduces those articles. There has been some change of sequence in order to integrate the individual articles into a full-length book--the first of its kind. It is the work of an American who flew across the Atlantic to see with his own eyes Britain at war and who flew back to the United States to tell his story.
