B0006AQNBO Stated second edition apparently printed in 1945, as was the first edition. pp. xiii, [3], 239. Sm. 8vo. Index. Appendices. Four-page reproduction of a photographic copy of the memorandum summarizing "The Morgenthau Plan" which President Roosevelt took to the historic Quebec conference in September of 1944. Fold-out two-color map entitled "Proposal for Post-War German Boundaries". The infamous Morgenthau Plan charted a course for Germany post WWII intended to revert it to a pastoral state. Senator Henrick Shipstead denounced it as "America's eternal monument of shame, for the destruction of the German people." - Congressional Record, Senate, May 15, 1946, p.5039. Morgenthau's "punishment policy deeply betrayed the will of the American people against indiscriminate vengeance, which had been demonstrated in the nationwide condemnation of the Morgenthau Plan." - James Bacque, Other Losses, p.158. "The Morgenthau Plan would wipe out everything in Germany except land, and the Germans would have to live on the land. Thus only 60 percent of the population could support themselves and the other 40 percent would die." - The Memoirs of Cordell Hull, p.1617. When word of this ominous plan leaked to Goebbels in the latter stages of WWII he exploited it to stiffen German resistance, thus extending the war and adding to the American casualty count. Considerable criticism was brought to bear upon Morgenthau as a result. Clean and unmarked with moderate wear to navy blue cloth. Binding sound. Average wear to dust jacket now preserved in archival-grade Brodart. A quality copy of this historic work.
