AUGUST 22 - THE JOAD DIARIES (1948)
I retained and maintained my pacifism at the outbreak of the last war, maintained it, albeit with increasing difficulty, through the early months of 1940.
Then came the invasion of the Low Countries, the capitulation of France, Dunkirk, and with the Nazis at the gate came THE TURNING POINT.
I came to see that there could be something worse than war, and that was the Nazi domination of Europe.
