“Dr. Rauschning’s new book, written in diary form, gives his day-to-day impressions of the Battle of London and the heroic endurance of the people of the Capital.  Interspersed with these are reflections that attempt to help to clear up the political confusions of the present time.
He likens the nights in the cellars and shelters of London to the voyage between decks in a new Mayflower, making for a better future.   What are the dangers of the voyage, and what does the future hold?
He points out that it is not only the German armed forces that have to be defeated, but also, and far more important, the spread of the ideas of the Nihilist World Revolution, of a new absolutism, bureaucratism, and centralised control of all social and economic life”.
