Ralph Waldo Barnes was an eyewitness to history. From Mussolini's Italy, Stalin's Russia, and Hitler's Germany, he reported first hand on the events of the 1930s for the readers of the New York Herald Tribune. In "Dispatches and Dictators," historian Barbara Mahoney chronicles the short life and brilliant career of Ralph Barnes. Her biography of this extraordinary reporter provides new insights into the tumultuous decade leading up to World War II.
"None of us could equal Ralph as an all-round, highly informed, and keenly perceptive news bloodhound. Of our generation, Ralph had the widest posted experience in major European capitals….Ralph Barnes was unchallengeably unique." —Leland Stowe, Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondent for the New York Herald Tribune and the Chicago Daily News
