Detailed Product Description
New York, Duell, Sloan & Pearce, 1943, 1st edition. 536 pp. Green cloth hardcover with no dust jacket. Near Fine. 

The story encompasses an imaginery war, with World War II continuing into the 1950s as Grant Hammond, an engineer in South America, gets involved in an attempt to unite all the South American republics into a single nation, like the U.S. His compatriots are a Peruvian Leader and his sister and a Hungarian Baron. They are opposed by the Peruvian President and dictator who has them arrested on a trumped up charge of treason. When they get out, they get stranded at a fort in Brazil where they fight yellow fever, the Nazi's attacking from the east coast and the Japanese attacking from the west. 

Carleton Beals (November 13, 1893 - April 4, 1979) was a radical American journalist, author, historian, and a crusader with special interests in Latin America. During his career, Beals witnessed Mexican revolutions, lectured on Shakespeare, and was held incommunicado by a Mexican general. His travels took him to French Morocco, Tunisia, Algiers, Greece, Turkey, the Soviet Union, Germany, and the Caribbean. He was a Ford Hall Forum speaker in 1936, and a member of the American Committee for the Defense of Leon Trotsky in 1937. The following year, Time Magazine called Beals, "the best informed and the most awkward living writer on Latin America."
