JAMES W. GERARD
Late United States Ambassador to tht
iCW AM writing what should have been the last
chapter as the foreword of this series of
articles, because I want to bring home to our
people the gravity of the situation; because I
want to tell them that the military and navaLpower
of the German Empire is unbroken. Americans
do not grasp either the magnitude or the importance
of this war. . . . There is far greater danger
of the starvation of our allies than of the starvation
of the Germans. . . . We are engaged in a
war against the greatest military power the world has ever seen;
against a people whose country was for so many centuries a theatre
of devastating wars that fear is bred into the very marrow of their
souls, making them ready to submit their lives and fortunes to an
i l i . 1 1x1 t 1 a. l-Jl. 1 .
autocracy wnicn ror centuries nas grouna xneir races, dui wmen na
promised them as a result of the war not only security, but riches untold and the dominion of Uie
world: a people which, as from a high mountain, has looked upon the cities of the world and thej
dories of them and has been promised these cities and their glories by the devils of autocraey and
tc ...... Wo cinnrl in t?reat Deril, and only the exercise of ruthless realism can win this
war for us. . . . If we had stayed out ana tne war naa oeen arawn or. won oy uerraany we
would have been attacked, and that while Europe stood grinning by. . . . I TELL SOME
THING OF THE REAL GERMANY not only that my readers may understand the events of the last
three years, but that they may judge what is likely to happen in our future relations with that '
