The Scream

dudeTesting and training are all to the good, but they take time. And time is short. All the powers are making last-minute overtures to one another. According to intercepted cables, the French ambassador to Germany, Coulondre, told Hitler than a long war could result in chaos and unexpected results: “You are thinking of yourselves as victors . . . but have you thought of another possibility, that the victor might be Trotsky?” Hitler jumped from his chair “as if he had been hit in the pit of his stomach, and screamed.”

I know how he feels.

—Richard Lourie, The Autobiography Of Joseph Stalin
