Germany's Dictated Peace Terms for the World (Omnibooks Digest, 1942)

During the opening months of 1941 Nazi Germany was positively drunk with power; their army seemed able to march wherever it chose and all of Europe was trembling. Foreign correspondent for the Hearst papers, H.R. Knickerbocker (1898 1949), pointed out that on April 29, 1941 the Axis forces had printed, what he termed, a "trial balloon" on the pages of The Japan Times Advertiser that clearly indicated the peace terms that were acceptable to them.

 

Why France Fell (Omnibooks Magazine, 1942)

On assignment for the Hearst papers, H.R. Knickerbocker (1898 1949) witnessed the total collapse of the French Army. He made his observations and conclusions available to American readers in his 1941 book Is Tomorrow Hitler's, which hit the bookshops shortly after Pearl Harbor.

"[The French Army] did not possess anything like the number of tanks and airplanes used by the Germans; but I would rank this deficiency at the bottom of any list of causes of the French defeat. If they had ignored their low birth rate, been willing to spend lives, had retained the old offensive spirit traditional in the French Army, had known that they had to win or perish, had a Churchill to inspire and lead them, and had no traitors in their ranks, their comparative lack of weapons would not have mattered; they would still be fighting the Germans in France. The inferiority of their equipment consisted in the lack of a sufficient number of planes and tanks, but if they had had the spirit to win they could have held the Germans until the deficiency could be made up."

What Hitler Wanted (Omnibooks Magazine, 1942)

Hearst reporter H.R. Knickerbocker (1898 1949) had been closely watching Hitler since 1923 and pointed out that on April 29, 1941 the Axis forces had printed a "trial balloon" on the pages of the JAPAN TIMES ADVERTISER that clearly indicated the peace terms that were acceptable to the Nazis. Attached is Knickerbocker's outline of this proposal, as well as the correspondent's astute commentary that he had prepared for his 1942 bestseller, Is Tomorrow Hitler's?

Why France Fell (Omnibooks Digest, 1942)

Writing from France for the Hearst papers in 1940, H.R. Knickerbocker (1898 1949) had witnessed the total collapse of the French Army.
His 1941 book Knickerbocker clearly outlined his reasoning as to why Nazi Germany was able to overwhelm the French and turn their withdraw into a route. In the attached seven pages the author answered the question "Why did France fall?":

"Because the French people were hypnotized by their low birth rate; because their Maginot Line had imprisoned their army; because they had no Churchill to inspire and lead them ... their comparative lack of weapons would not have mattered... if they had had the spirit to win they could have held the Germans until the deficiency could be made up."
