ShortlybeforetheSecondWorldWar,LondePoncins,by

entitledEuropeCallingforHelp.
Atthattime,thisadditionseemednecessary.ThefirsteditionendedwiththeadventofBolshevism

respecttothefurtherdevelopmentsoftheoccultwarandtoaseriesofnewfactswhichseemedto
leadtoareaction,totheawakeningofnationalistEuropeandtotheformationofacommonfront
againsttheforcesofglobalsubversion.

However,aftertheinterwaryears,theSecondWorldWar,andthecatastropheinwhichitwasto
end,anewseriesoffactspresentedthemselvestotheattentionofthehistorian.Thus,whatde

partsofEuropeCallingforHelpwhicharestillvalid,withcertainadditionalconsiderationson
