About the Author

Robert Lyman is the author of numerous books, including Among the Headhunters and The Real X-Men. Widely regarded as one of Britain's most talented historians, he is a former officer in the British Army and a fellow of the Royal Historical Society. He lives in Berkshire, England.


Lyman uses the firsthand accounts of students, housewives, academics, journalists, businesspeople, and others to provide a clear and unsettling account of the North Americans who warned of Nazi Germany before Hitler declared war on the U.S. A well-constructed, valuable alternative to military-focused histories of the time.
A historical study of American expatriates and travelers--George Kennan, Eric Sevareid, Josephine Baker, and many more--in the dawning years of World War II. The most compelling parts of Lyman's portraits of Americans in Europe in the time of what Churchill called 'the gathering storm' concern people most readers will not have heard of, such as the Quaker aid worker Leonard Kenworthy, whose dreams were haunted by the faces of the Jews whom he could not save after the Nazi deportations began.
