From the Back Cover
Henry Morgenthau was United States ambassador to Ottoman Turkey between 1913 and 1916. In 1914 he witnessed the Ottoman entry into World War I and the genocide of the empire's Armenian population. "Ambassador Morgenthau's Story" was an indictment against the Ottoman leaders for their entry into the world conflict and the mass murder of over a million Armenians. His account was written with the authority of a first-hand observer and remains one of the classic accounts of World War I. "Ambassador Morgenthau's Story" is published as part of the Gomidas Institute Armenian Genocide Documentation Series, alongside "American Diplomacy on the Bosphorus: The Diaries of Ambassador Morgenthau," the systematic collection "United States Diplomatic and Consular Records on the Armenian Genocide," and the British classic "The Treatment of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, 1915" (uncensored edition).

I was also surprised to learn that the organization of the deportations of the Armenian Christians was a German invention, that was perfected in WWII against the Jews. This book should be required reading in any class that teaches WWI history.
All of the drawings referenced were not visible...a real shame!
I do wish the original photographs were included. But, enjoyed the fabulous tale of this great, great man.
