Proud Destiny Author: Lion Feuchtwanger   TAKEN!

**This book does not come  up in a search for American Revolution!

This vintage book, in  great condtition, was translated from the German in 1947, A fascinating srory from the viewpoint of the Europeans during  the American Revolution. Below a synopsis from the forward of the book:

Here begins the novel Proud Destiny, also called Arms for America. It is the story of the wit and folly, the crafty stupidity, and the overconventionalized corruption of a decaying society. You will find in it charming ladies and brilliant, vain men, intellect combined with empty hearts and full hearts combined with a maladroit hand... The story tells further of the struggle of men, of words, and of ideas revolving around and economic upheaval.
