1937 – from the flooded Ohio to the new Golden Gate Bridge, from bombed Guernica to newly-opened Buchenwald to the Rape of Nanking – was a year of portent. Markham Shaw Pyle and GMW Wemyss, the celebrated historians of the Titanic enquiries and of the coming of the Second World War, here survey that dread year, from Tolkien and Disney to war and terror. This is history in the grand manner.
