A World to Win. A Lanny Budd Novel. BOOK ONE. The Pelting of This Pitiless Storm. The French are never prone to open windows, and the Vice-Premier was shut tightly in his overdecorated office
A World to Win. The French are never prone to open windows, and the Vice-Premier was shut tightly in his overdecorated office. He made no concession to summer fashions, but wore his customary black suit and the white bow tie which had become his trademark in French politics. He mopped his swarthy forehead as he talked, and now and then passed the damp handkerchief around his neck; elegance had never been his role, and the fact that he had amassed one or two hundred million francs made no difference.
Part of Lanny Budd series by Upton Sinclair. They should not wait too long! It is a calamity for the world that such a man is kept in power and allowed to prolong this cruel conflict. You must know that it would have been over long ago but for the encouragement your country has given the stubborn Churchill, and the planes they have sent, to be used in killing not merely our soldiers but our women and children in their beds. It had taken Lanny a long time to wake up to the meaning of these intricate and subtle deceptions, but in the end he had come to understand clearly that you couldn’t be friends with a Nazi; a Nazi was the enemy of every non-Nazi in the world. Even if you, a non-German, adopted the hateful creed, you didn’t really get anywhere; the true Herrenvolk would use you, but in their hearts they would despise you as a traitor to your own kind and a dupe of the Nazi Weltbetrag.

A World to Win - Upton Sinclair. He sat at his desk by the window of what had once been a luxurious hotel suite, and beamed upon his visitor, reminding him: It has happened just about as I told you, M. Budd. Lanny said it was so, and thought that the death of something like a hundred and twenty-five thousand Frenchmen, and the captivity of ten or twelve times as many, signified less to Pierre Laval than the ability to say: "C’est moi qui avait raison!" It was midsummer of the year 1940, and a hot wind was blowing from the deserts of Africa over the plains of Central France.
