"That Hitler preceded his declaration of war with a spate of lies, and has accompanied his every military and diplomatic action since 1939 with lies is known to most people, but few realize the extent and quality of his mendacity. (This book) is the considered indictment by a lawyer of high distinction - of a method of attack which the German Fuehrer has reduced to a carefully studied science by the employment of which he hoped to mislead neutral opinion and hoodwink the German public." Contents: Preface; Introduction; The Policy is Deliberate; Mendacity as an Instrument of Aggression; Lies About the War at Sea; Lies About the War in the Air; Lies About the Sinkings of Mercantil Vessels; Hitler and the New Order: The First Version; The New Order: Second Version; Lying as a Fine Art; Conclusion.
