Qui est cet inconnu able d’en remontrer au grand Czentovic, champion mondial des échecs, véritable prodige aussi fruste qu’antipathique ? Peut-on le croire, quand il affirme qu’il n’a pas joué depuis plus de vingt ans ? Les circonstances dans lesquelles l’homme a acquis cette technological know-how sont terribles. Elles nous renvoient aux expérimentations nazies sur les effets de l’isolement absolu, lorsque, aux frontières de los angeles folie, entre deux interrogatoires, le cerveau humain parvient à déployer ses facultés les plus étranges. Une delusion inquiétante, fantastique, qui, comme le dit un personnage avec une ironie douloureuse, « pourrait servir d’illustration à los angeles charmante époque où nous vivons ».

Traduction, préface et commentaires par Brigitte Vergne-Cain et Gérard Rudent.

France had withdrawn as guardian of Ethiopia as early as 1928. Britain, too, had become less concerned for the preservation of her independence and increasingly accepted that her interests there could be maintained under Italian rule. Beyond Ethiopia itself, however, Britain and France did feel grave concern over the effect that hostilities in East Africa would have on their colonial possessions. 13 The French Government was likewise `desperately anxious'14 regarding the possible repercussions on French colonies.

Both followed and remained within a double-line of limited coercion combined with conciliation and concessions to the aggressor. It has been argued that the crisis posed a straightforward, if awkward, choice for Britain and France between resistance and appeasement, between threats (backed up if necessary by collective action) and sufficient concessions to Italy to prevent her from resorting to arms combined with pressure on the Ethiopians to concede. In this the choice that confronted Paris and London over Ethiopia reflected the wider and longer-term choice over policy towards the fascist powers.
