A book written in 1939 warning of Adolf Hitler and propsing a way to peace without war.
"The entire world is living from day to day in an ever increasing fear of "the next war", All peoples read about it, think about it, and do little to prevent it. In DEMAND PEACE the author has briefly depicted international relations, differences, and policies with the intention of arousing the public to demand peace.
The unbelievable cost of present day rearming, the cost per week of the World War, and a solution for today's international financial suicidal program are but a few of the important subjects which are dealt with in this book.
The author is firmly convinced that nations must understand the character and personality of Adolf Hitler if they are to live peaceably with Germany.
There is one glaring mistake which the world has made through history and continues to make. Countries wait until a crisis arises before they present a united front.
The author, in writing this book, is warning the reader that the leader of Germany, Adolf Hitler, is without any conceivable doubt a momomaniac. He is a genius with a dangerous inflated egotistical brain. But a solution is available to control such egoists and others who aspire to leadership of nations by the same tactic.
