James, Robert Rhodes.


1st ed., 1976. Xiv + 306 pp., photo-plates. D.j., 22 x 14cm. FINE. Victor Cazalet, an MP and liaison officer between Sikorski, the Polish Prime Minister, and the British government, was killed in a plane crash in July 1943 along with Sikorski. Cazalet was a vehement champion of the establishment of the Jewish National Home in Palestine and was dedicated to the cause of Poland in its darkest hour which had created a special bond with the Polish people. He was one of the first British politicians who discerned what was really happening in Europe in the early 1930’s but his warnings were unheeded. Churchill, once a close friend of Cazalet, became a persistent critic. This memoir is based on Cazalet’s diaries and papers.
