Editorial Reviews


"Dan Plesch has done a historically vital job in researching the huge, and virtually unvisited, archives of the wartime United Nations. America, Hitler and the UN for the first time shows the present United Nations in the full context of its wartime parentage. In doing so, it provides an important new dimension both for the world organization’s current and ever-growing responsibilities, and for those who are responsible for charting and developing its future." -- Sir Brian Urquhart, former Undersecretary-General of the United Nations
"[A fascinating new book" -- Simon Tisdall, Guardian
"The United Nations is often seen by lay people as an organisation that came into being after the Second World War. This book provides a corrective" -- Evan Mawdsley, BBC History Magazine
