Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This book uniquely focuses on Dr Edward Hempel, German Minister in Dublin from 1937 to 1945, covering the period of the Second World War known in Ireland as 'the Emergency'. It reveals the difficulties experienced by a career diplomat like Hempel of the so-called 'old school' in implementing Nazi foreign policy as enunciated by Ribbentrop, the erratic German Foreign Minister. It throws new light on Third Reich diplomacy which lacked unity and was subject to inputs from a proliferation of competing maverick agencies. Thus, after the fall of France, de Valera found that even the usual staid Hempel was 'unbearable'. De Valera, the then Taoiseach, however, not only outmaneuvered Hempel but he also outboxed the 'Paddy-factored' British. He realized, however, that words alone would not deter Hitler. His anti-partition rhetoric therefore remained anti-British but his actions continued to show 'a certain consideration for Britain'. He did not accept that absolute neutrality was a practical pro
