Roosevelt with every possible good wish John W, Wheeler-Bennett January 1939.” With Eleanor Roosevelt’s bookplate. One could imagine Roosevelt reading and gleaning from this instructive work regarding peace after the first World War, with the invasion of Sudetenland and subsequent letters from President Roosevelt to Hitler for peace and later The Yalta Conference. In near fine condition.

"The Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, the4 first peace treaty of World War I, signified the apparently complete victory of the German army on the eastern front. It was also the greatest diplomatic and military humiliation Russia had sustained...John W. Wheeler-Bennett tells the dramatic story of the treaty's negotiation, analyzing the motives behind the diplomatic moves made by both sides and the struggle for final ratification by Russia."
