(1883-1957) German author of some prominence during the Weimar Period; his Future War novel, Wahn-Europa 1934: Eine Vision (1931; trans Ian Fitzherbert Despard Morrow as Death Rattle 1932), depicts from a pacifist leftwing standpoint a Europe descending deliriously into Near Future chaos after France and Italy invade each other; with Russian armies soon invading Poland, a version of World War Two begins almost immediately. The novel was widely translated. [JC]
