International Affairs

"Students of interwar diplomatic history have an ever dimishing area of unplotted turf to borrow into. Therefore, as most historians still agree with the late grandee of Cambridge dons, Geoffrey R. Elton, that the understanding and evaluation of historical source material 'remains the only proper ambition', the publication of a hitherto entirely unknown collection of prime documents from the period is very good news. Tibor Frank has carefully arranged and annotated an impressive volume of notes by John Flournoy Montgomery, United States minister (Head of Mission) in Budapest from 1933 to 1941. Professor Frank discovered the papers in the United States and obtained them from Montgomery's daughter in 1993."
