QuotationPeace News asked me to review your book on Jagerstaetter [In Solitary Witness], and I did. Here is a copy of the review. I thought the book was extremely well done. It made very good reading, and any reader with average sense can surely get to it. Yet it is also scientific. I think it is really a fine contribution to the cause of peace, and will certainly make it hard for the disgruntled and pious supporters of the bomb to accuse you of being nasty, because the book does not really imply any special attack on anyone. It just says what the man did.
