Premonitions of War

Written by Professor Robert J. Young
Premonitions of War tells the story of the weighty international matters that haunted the editorial staff at the Winnipeg Free Press in the 1930s
In the 1930s, John Dafoe and the editorial writers of the Winnipeg Free Press warned readers of international maladies that were about to disrupt the world.
The worst moments could be traced back to those whom Dafoe had called fascist “madmen,” Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. It was in them that the observers on Carlton Street saw the greatest threat to the hard-won peace of 1919, the peace that had finally emerged from the wreckage of the First World War.
