Softcover. The trial and hanging by the Communists of Nikola Petkov, the leader of the Bulgarian opposition, in the autumn of 1947, sent a shock of horror through the civilised world and brought protests from Government spokesmen in practically every democratic capital. The author, who was one of Petkov's closest friends, explains why what Mr. Bevin, speaking in the House of Commons, described as a "test case" marked a turning point in post-war European politics. "The Communists had liquidated other prominent democrats," he wrote, "in no other case, however, had the complete innocence of the victim been clearer." With Frontis. 160pp. trade size wraparound softcover. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Includes loosely inserted newspaper cutting. Lightly sunned, with 'splash' mk. to lower cover o/w Vg.
