This is the fascinating autobiography of Ernst Toller. Ernst Toller (1893 - 1939) was a German left-wing playwright, best known for his expressionist plays. He also famously served for six days in 1919 as the President of the short-lived Bavarian Soviet Republic, later being imprisoned for his actions. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in twentieth-century European history. Contents include: "Childhood", "A Student in France", "War", "At the Front", "An Attempt to Forget Revolt", "Strike", "The Military Prison", "The Lunatic Asylum", "Revolution", "The Bavarian Soviet Republic", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
