“Dragon’s Teeth”

Dragon’s Teeth, the Pulitzer winner for 1943, is the fourth in an 11-book series by Upton Sinclair.  I’d like to be able to tell you I read the whole series, but this one was over 600 pages and the rest seem to be difficult to track down.  (My local libraries don’t have them.  They were reprinted in 2001 and sell for $25-30 a copy, which multiplied by 10 is outside my budget).

This part of the sweeping historical epic concerns Hitler’s takeover of Germany before the outbreak of WWII.  The novel begins as a rather heavy-handed introduction to Socialism, but the story picks up pace as Hitler, Goring, and Goebbels make cameo appearances and the wealthy central characters attempt to rescue Jewish friends from the Nazis.
