Peter David Orr's book is an original piece of research and writing dedicated to relating the diplomatic initiatives (both official and unofficial, public and secret) that were intended to end or stop the spread of the Second World War in Europe. Special attention is given to specific peace proposals, initiatives, and back-channel diplomatic maneuverings, all within the general context of the intra-war foreign policies of all concerned parties. Diplomatic efforts designed to bring about an end to hostilities by belligerent and non-belligerent nations are included. Geographically, this work is confined to the European theater of operations. The chronological focus of this volume is the earliest stages of the conflict, September 1, 1939 to September 17, 1940.
Orr has set out to bring a fresh perspective to the writing of war histories; to expand the horizons of what should be covered in any analysis of war-time history. The implications of this approach are far reaching. The intent was not to write another war history. Nor was his purpose to pen a revisionist treatise. Rather, Peace at Daggers Drawn, constitutes an attempt to objectively cover an aspect of the war that has never been sufficiently explored. Peace at Daggers Drawn is the first historical monograph covering peace initiatives and prospects during the Second World War.
