Octavo. Hardcover. 1st Edition.

First American edition of this work by a German pacifist and author detailing the massive growth of Germany's air force, written three years before Germany invaded Poland, in the original dust jacket. In the years leading up to World War II, few were as passionate as German pacifist Otto Lehman-Russbueldt about informing the world about Germany's militaristic ambitions. Using facts and statistics, Lehman-Russbueldt painstakingly lays out the scale of German militarization, particularly with regards to the air force. Only a few years later, Hitler's Luftwaffe would be responsible for devastating attacks on the Allies including Poland and the United Kingdom. Book about-fine, dust jacket with only light wear and toning to extremities. A near-fine copy.
