Readers probably will encounter familiar names in the roster of individuals who figure in the narrative. These may include William Paley, General Lucius Clay, Nicholas Nabokov, Harold Laski, General Robert McClure, Leon Edel, Edward Shils and various people who may not yet be famous but should be. One also meets German citizens-journalists and others-who played a part in reestablishing democratic institutions and a free press in Germany. Not least among these is a stubborn old printer who was intimidated neither by the Nazis nor by an American second lieutenant.
