Big promise, little delivery

The Aryan German community in Paraguay is the object of our search, and yet
it turns out to be a feeble enterprise with little or no historical consequences.
Most of the book is filler material about Elisabeth Nietzsche's perversion of her brother's writings. Mildly interesting, but tedious. Macintyre will develop into a great writer; this early book of his, is far below his best.
