The Passing Tribute*
Fascinating Look at Post-WWI Europe
This is a tale of two brothers in the aftermath of World War I. One brother is in Vienna, which is struggling after the end of the Great War. The author’s vivid depiction definitely demonstrates how Hitler could have been formed in such a crucible as post-war Austria plagued by starvation, inflation, and other trials. The other brother is in London, and his task to help bring about the better Europe envisioned by his higher-ups bring him and his brother together in a way that neither could have foreseen.
The author has chosen an interesting time in Europe’s history to illuminate and show through the twin lenses of these brothers. This is not an easy read, for both the sometimes dense descriptions and what the story itself is actually about. Still, I found it a fascinating glimpse into the time between the two great wars of the last century.
