Brecht made this book when he was in exile in Denmark and consists of photographs cut from magazines accompanied by four-line rhyming poems. It is a very interesting anti-war protest book but also focusses on the Americans fighting the war with reluctance and seeing Russia and socialism as their true enemy. One of the (translated) poems:
A summer day was dawning near Cherbourg
A man from Maine came crawling up the sand
Supposedly against men from the Ruhr
In fact against the men of Stalingrad.
Good – Very good. Including original dust jacket. Dust jacket has shelf wear, some small tears and some spots but is complete. Inside in very nice condition, no discoloration or spots. Flyleaf has a fold. Considering its age in absolute great condition.
