Dear Mr. Hample, Just a short note to confirm receipt of the book and my absolute satisfaction with it. I am in the process of building a library of books from the interwar period to document and understand the events as seen by contemporaries as very often knowledge of what happened afterwards colours the views of historians. I am mainly focussed on Italian matters but books describing current events in other countries such as Germany, UK, France, Spain, Japan and the US are of interest to me. If you have a catalogue or can indicate to me any other books that you think could interest me, I would be very gratefll.Thank you in advance and best regards. - Massimo C.
