INTRODUCTORY NOTE

In some measure this book is a continuation of MY FOUR YEARS IN GERMANY, the narrative here being carried up to the time of my return home, with some observations on the situation I have found in the United States.

What I want especially to impress upon the people of the United States is that we are at war because Germany invaded the United States--an invasion insidiously conceived and vigorously prosecuted for years before hostilities began;--that this war is our war;--that the sanctity of American freedom and of the American home depend upon what we do _NOW_.

JAMES W. GERARD.

NEW YORK, APRIL FIRST, 1918.
