NotesRepublished in David Low, Europe at War, (Penguin Books, 1941). Printed on opposite page: "The invasion of Britain being held up, Hitler decided on a diplomatic blitzrieg to show U.S.A. how useless it was to oppose him. After feverish comings and goings of statesmen and stooges an alleged "formidable army of nations" was rounded up to demonstrate the complete identity of views and powers in Europe behind the Axis. It was a flop." p.122.
