Excerpt

"The German Terror in France" is a directcontinuation of "The German Terror inBelgium" which was published severalmonths ago. The chapters are numbered consecutivelythroughout the two volumes, and between them theycover all the ground overrun by the German Armiesin their invasion on the West.

For the purpose of the book and the scheme on which it is written, the reader is referred to the preface of the earlier volume. But it may be mentioned that, while Chapter IV in the present volume is on the same scale as those which precede it, Chapters V, VI, and VII are considerably compressed. In these later chapters, as in the others, full references to the sources are given in the footnotes; but the sources themselves are not quoted so freely in the text, and I have in many cases been content to reprint summaries of the firsthand evidence already made by the French and Belgian Commissions, instead of re-analysing and re-summarising the original material myself.

ARNOLD J. TOYNBEE.

20th June, 1917.
