A Canadian historian of relations between the west and the Soviet Union, Carley explores the failed diplomacy that led to World War II. He describes often secret negotiations between Britain, France, and the Soviet Union to document the failure to form a united front against Nazi Germany. He blames the failure on anti-communism among the French and British leaders. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

At a crucial point in the twentieth century, as Nazi Germany prepared for war, negotiations between Britain, France, and the Soviet Union became the last chance to halt Hitler's aggression. Michael Carley's gripping account of these negotiations challenges prevailing interpretations by situating 1939 at the end of the early cold war between the Soviet Union, France, and Britain, and by showing how anti-communism was the major cause of the failure to form an alliance against Hitler.
