First edition, first printing of Bourke-White's remarkable piece of post-war reportage; with photographs and anecdotes gathered in the immediate aftermath of World War II in what starts as an attempt to give a human face to "Faceless Fritz", and ends in an urgent indictment against the dehumanised soul of a nation divorced from "the democratic idea".
