Excerpt from Our Secret AllianceIt would seem that the many books and articles thus far published on the European war of 1914 must have told the whole story, but certain events that have impressed themselves upon me seem not to have been traced in any, and so I feel constrained to point them out, especially because the evidence that I shall present from Boer sources has never been published so far as I know, and should be laid before the jury of the nation and historians that will render final verdict upon this case.That jury of historians will, as always before judging the evidence, try the witness, so my readers will pardon me if I precede my narrative of events by an account of myself, how I happened to secure my knowledge, and what my invalidating biases may be. I believe that I am typically American. My grandparents came to America when my parents were children, and were among the Pilgrim Fathers of the immigration into the West, their motive, faith in America and discontent with certain temporary infringements upon liberty in the Netherlands, that home of liberty. I have never known more devoted Americans than my father and mother were. My father s keen interest in American and Dutch history probably stimulated me, for even before I had reached the university my interest was vivid and so wide that nothing that was human was foreign to me.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
