Summary
"The actions and words recorded above are not merely those of a few irreconcilables, romantically and vaguely testifying to their belief; they express a world-wide movement of realistic men who see in the destruction of Nazi domination a purpose for which everyone who holds ideals for the human race must fight unremittingly. Were this war just a struggle between nations or races, their words might have been condemned or ignored: but these men see the present struggle in its true light -- as a conflict between two aspirations, a conflict from which no man who loves his honour may flinch, a conflict for which there can be but one solution, complete victory for the cause of the spirit ... these men -- Czechs and Poles, the Norse and the Dutch, Belgians and French -- have held their faith and honour dear: and because of that their cause is the cause of life, of hope and of conviction. Concerning the ultimate certainty of victory they have no doubt."--p.[4]
