The Cold War and Its Origins, 1917-1960 - Vol. 1

By D. F. Fleming | Go to book overview

BIBLIOGRAPHICAL FOREWORD

THE devoted labor of many other authors has inevitably contributed to the substance of this study.

The one book which has been most essential to it is Robert Sherwood Roosevelt and Hopkins, New York, Harper, 1948. It was also published in London under the title, The White House Papers of Harry Hopkins, London, Eyre and Spottiswoode, 1948-9. This is the best single source of the war-time utterances of Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin. No one can understand either the history of World War II or the immediate origins of the Cold War without reading this book.

For the appeasement period the authoritative Life of Neville Chamberlain by Keith Feiling, New York, Macmillan, 1946, and London, Macmillan, 1947, is as essential. This fair and responsible account of the thoughts and activities of the chief architect of the appeasement policy is indispensable to an understanding of why it was tried and why it failed. The failure is recorded unforgettably in J. W. Wheeler-Bennett Munich, Prologue to Tragedy, London, Macmillan; New York, Duell, Sloane and Pearce, 1948. This is an epic account of the surrender of Central and East Europe to Germany and to Fascism which no one should miss. In the same category is Betrayal in Central Europe by G. E. R. Gedye, New York, Harper, 1939, and the sensitive book of Herbert L. Matthews, The Education of a Correspondent, New York, Harcourt Brace, 1946. Matthews gives insight into the Spanish Civil War not to be found elsewhere. His clear vision on other subjects is also revealed in these pages from his articles and editorials in the New York Times.

For the record of events in the interlude of the Soviet-German truce I have relied mainly on the book of captured documents, Nazi-Soviet Relations, 1939- 1941, edited by James Sontag and J. S. Beddie ( Supt. of Documents, Washington); The Incompatible Allies, by two German diplomats, Gustav Hilger and Alfred G. Meyer, New York, Macmillan, 1953; The Nuremberg Documents, by Peter de Mendelssohn, London, Allen & Unwin, 1946; and the first-hand report of the Rumanian diplomat Grigore Gafencu, Prelude to the Russian Campaign, London, Muller, 1945.

On the war-time period the memoirs of a half-dozen of the leading actors in it are invaluable. The two-volume Memoirs of Cordell Hull, New York, Macmillan, 1948, London, Hodder, 1948, have been frequently quoted. I have relied on James F. Byrnes, Speaking Frankly, New York, Harper, 1947; London, Heinemann, 1947, in many parts of the book, and valuable information has been found in the books of a third Secretary of State, Edward R. Stettinius , Lend Lease, Weapon of Victory, New York, Macmillan, 1944, and Roosevelt and the Russians, New York, Doubleday, 1949; London, Cape, 1950. I have drawn on various volumes of Churchill war memoirs and used those of President Truman extensively, The Memoirs of Harry S. Truman,
