Onward Christian Soldiers
[This book, despite its religious title, is not concerned with Christianity.
It’s about jewish depredations on humanity.
This new version of Onward Christian Soldiers that I’ve compiled consists of the original contents published by Noontide Press in 1982 plus the “missing” text that, for reasons explained below, was in the Swedish version published in 1942.
I’ve also included some supplementary texts here giving the history of the missing parts of Day’s book. Also book reviews by Revilo Oliver and Amazon readers.

LIBERTY BELL PUBLICATIONS
THE REST OF
Donald Day, who had been for many years the foreign correspondent of the Chicago Tribune in northern Europe, wrote a record of his observations, Onward, Christian Soldiers, in 1942. His English text was first published as a book in 1982. It was printed by William Morrison and appeared under the imprint of the Noontide Press of Torrance, California, As Professor Oliver pointed out in his review of that book in Liberty Bell for January, 1983, the text had been copied, with some omissions and minor changes, from an anonymously issued mimeographed transcription of a defective carbon copy of the author’s manuscript, which had been brought to the United States in someway, despite the vigilance of Franklin Roosevelt’s surreptitious thought-police.
That was not the first publication of Day’s book. A Swedish translation, Framat Krististridsman, was published by Europa Edition in Stockholm in 1944. (That paper cover, printed in red, green, and black, is reproduced in black-and-white on the following page.)
Copies of this book still survive in Sweden and are even found in some public libraries. There may still be a copy in the Library of Congress, where, however, it was catalogued and buried among the very numerous books of a different Donald Day, a very prolific writer who midwifed the autobiography of Will Rogers and produced book after book on such various subjects as American humorists, the folk-lore of the Southwest, the tourist-attractions of Texas, and probably anything for which he saw a market, including a mendacious screed entitled Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Own Story. By a supreme irony, the Library concealed Framat Kristi stridsman in its catalogue by placing it between the other Day’s Evolution of Love and his propaganda piece for the unspeakably vile monster whose millions of victims included one of the last honest journalists.
The Swedish translation contains some long and important passages that do not appear in the book published in California and are not found in the mimeographed copy. By translating these back into English, I can restore Donald Day’s meaning, but, of course, I cannot hope to reproduce exactly the words and style of his original manuscript. I can also restore from the Swedish the deficiencies of the mimeographed transcript.
It seems impossible to determine now whether the parts of Day’s work that are preserved only in the Swedish were deleted by him to shorten his text when he sent a typewritten copy to the United States or were added by him before he turned his manuscript over to the Swedish translator at about the same time. At all events, the Swedish now alone provides us with some significant parts of bay‘s book and many Americans will want to have Day’s Work complete and entire.
For the convenience of the reader, I have, by arrangement with the publisher of Liberty Bell, included corrections of the printed English text where it departs, through negligence or misunderstanding, from the mimeographed text from which it was copied. I have passed over obvious typographical errors in the printed book, and omitted small and relatively unimportant corrections. For example, near the end of p. 44 of the printed book, the sentence should read, “All reported that the officials of the Cheka, later known as the GPU and NKVD, were Jews.”
Day did not use footnotes, so the reader will understand what all the footnotes [indicated by the symbol *] on the following pages are my own explanations of the text.
The supplements below are arranged in the order of pages of the printed book, as shown by the note in the small type that precedes each section, The three sources are discriminated typographically thus; Italics show what is copied from the printed text to give continuity.
Ordinary Roman type is used for what is in the mimeographed copy but was omitted from the printed version. This, of course, is precisely what Day wrote in English.
What I have translated back from the Swedish appears in this style of type. These passages, as I have said, convey Day’s meaning without necessarily restoring exactly the words he used in his English original, from which the Swedish version was made.
With the foregoing supplements, we have at last as accurate a text of Donald Day’s Onward, Christian Soldiers as we are likely to have, barring the remote possibility that the manuscript Day gave to his Swedish translator may yet be discovered.
The Swedish translation is pedestrian, as indeed is Day’s English style, but a comparison of the Swedish with the extant parts of the English assures me of the translator’s general competence. In one passage, which we have only in the Swedish, in which Day reports his refusal to become a well-paid and dignified member of our Diplomatic Service with a “little Morgenthau” as an “adviser” to tell him what to do, the translator was evidently confused by the irony of some English phrase such as “executive for a Jew” and reversed Day’s obvious meaning;, this was corrected in the foregoing text.
The mimeographed version is evidently a transcription from Day’s carbon copy, with only such errors as only the most expert typists can entirely avoid. There is, however, one very odd error in the mimeographed version corresponding to our printed page 4 above; it reads “the Great Rocky mountains of the border of Tennessee and North Carolina.” That is geographically absurd, of course, and the Swedish (stora Rijkiga Bergen) shows that Day wrote “Great Smoky mountains,” as we have, printed above. It is probably only a coincidence that the Swedish word for “Smoky” could have suggested, to a person who knew no Swedish, the error made by the typist in California who copied Day’s carbon copy.
When Day relies on his recollection of what he was told years before, his memory is sometimes faulty, and we have naturally made no changes in what he wrote. He makes an obvious error on our page 4, where he says that the Cherokees were driven from their lands and moved to Indian Territory “toward the end of the last century.” Actually, the expulsion of the Cherokee Nation by an American army took place in 1838. The Cherokees, by the way, were the most nearly civilized of all the Indian tribes in the territory that is now the United States and Canada, and it is true that their expulsion from the lands that had been guaranteed to them by treaty inflicted great hardships on them: they lost most of their property, including their negro slaves, and large numbers of them perished as they were quite brutally herded from the Appalachians almost half way across the continent to what is now the southern border of Arkansas.
Ethnologists who have made intensive studies of the Indians of North America (e.g., Peter Farb) regard Sequoyah (Sequoia) as perhaps “the greatest intellect the Indians produced.” He was the son of a Cherokee woman by an unidentified white trader, and, growing up with the mother’s people, regarded himself as a Cherokee. He, however, was an exception to what Day says about half-breeds. Day may have been confused about the date of the expulsion because a few of the Cherokees succeeded in hiding from the perquisition in the wilds of the Great Smokies and were eventually given the small reservation they now occupy east of Bryson City in the toe of North Carolina. There was some agitation about them “near the end of the last century.”
The circumstances in which Day’s carbon copy was smuggled into the United States remain obscure. When the mimeographed transcription was made and first issued, it contained a prefatory page on which an anonymous writer said,
“It is my understanding that this book was published in; 1942, and then merely made an appearance at the book-sellers, when all copies were immediately withdrawn and destroyed without a single copy escaping the book-burners, I was also told that Mr. Day died shortly after this incident.”
The page was presumably withdrawn when its author learned that Day was still alive at that time and an exile in Helsinki, since the Jews who rule the United States would not permit him to return to his native land.
It is curious that the man who made the transcription, which did effectively preserve Day’s work for the future, and who was evidently a resident of California, had heard a somewhat less plausible version of the rumor that was current in Washington in 1943. (See the review by Professor Oliver in Liberty Bell, January 1983, p. 27). It is quite possible that the source of both rumors was an effort by the apparatus of the great War Criminal in the White House to prevent the publication of the Swedish translation, which, as Day tells us in the last item in our supplements, was delayed in the press for two years by a “paper shortage” and it is noteworthy that the paper for it was finally obtained in Finland, not Sweden,* Until the book was finally published in 1944, the enemies of mankind could have imagined that their pressures on Sweden had effectively prevented Day’s exposure of one phase of their activity from ever appearing in print.
[* Day’s book was published by Europa Edition in Stockholm, which, however, had to have the printing done by Mercators Tryckeri in Helsinki. Although copies of the Swedish book have been preserved, Day’s work would not now be generally known — and would be supposed lost by Americans who heard of it — if the anonymous gentleman in California had not issued his mimeographed transcription.]
KATANA — The Liberty Bell article continues with a list of text to be added or amended to the Noontide edition. All these changes (indicated by the dark blue text) have been entered in this expanded version of Onward Christian Soldiers.

The Liberty Bell — January 1983

by Revilo P. Oliver
For twenty years, I have hoped to see this long-suppressed book in print. It is a fundamental historical source, and one shudders when one thinks how nearly it came to being lost to the world.
I wish I knew the story of its precarious survival. In the District of Corruption, late in 1943, as I remember, one heard in informed circles mention of a book that had been written by an honest newspaper man who was a foreign correspondent of the Chicago Tribune and had witnessed the occupation of the Baltic republics by the Soviet after the pact with Stalin that Hitler made in a desperate attempt to avert the war that Roosevelt and his masters were trying to start in Europe. The book, it was implied, had been set up in type and printed shortly before the diseased monster in the White House finally succeeded in tricking the Japanese into destroying at Pearl Harbor the American fleet that had been assembled there for their convenience. All copies of the book, it was said, had been destroyed, except a few that had been surreptitiously saved for sale as great rarities at some future date.
It seems that the book described in that circumstantial story must have been the work of Donald Day, who had been, for twenty years, the Chicago Tribune’s representative in northern Europe, but it cannot refer to the present text, which was certainly revised in 1942 and has a preface dated January 1943. If there was an earlier version that was printed and destroyed, Day makes no mention of it. And in January 1943, Day could not have hoped to have his book printed anywhere while the crazed American cattle were being driven into Europe to serve the Jews in their war against our race and civilization. His passport had been stolen by the State Department and he had been marooned in Finland to prevent the return to this country of an honorable witness who could not be intimidated or bribed. When Day completed his manuscript in 1943, he must have intended it for publication after the war and in a happier era for which he still hoped.
I do not know through what channels Day’s manuscript was brought to the United States, nor do 1 know whether the original of the typewritten text survived. His carbon copy, lacking two pages, somehow came into the possession of a gentleman who made no effort to have it published, but who did permit it to be copied in 1962 and reproduced by mimeographing for the small audience that is interested in the facts of history. Mimeographed copies were sold, and still are available from, Jane’s Book Service in Reno, Nevada, and doubtless other dealers. One of those mimeographed copies was the source of the printed text that has now been published.
Poor Day, exiled from his own country by the aliens who have taken control of it, perforce remained in Helsinki until his death in 1966, a martyr to Truth and Jewish terrorism. But there is some uncertainty about the circumstances, and they are relevant to the censorship of the press in this hapless land.
A year or more before Day’s death, I made an effort to procure formal publication of his book, enlisting the cooperation of Frank Hughes, who had been the aide of Colonel McCormick and had remained on the staff of the Tribune, although so out-of-favor with the dividend-hungry inheritors that the one “scoop” with which I tried to supply him was insolently mutilated. Our project was delayed by the difficulty of obtaining access to files of the Tribune that had been removed to a warehouse, which Hughes needed to consult for his introduction to the book, and terminated by his premature death. He told me, however, that after Colonel McCormick had been forced to discharge Day by his and our enemies in the government of the United States, and to leave his foremost correspondent stranded and impoverished in. Finland, McCormick secretly and through clandestine channels continued to supply Day with a modest income. I wish to believe a story so much to the credit of the owner and publisher of the last newspaper that can properly be called American.
In the introduction to the present book, however, Walter Trohan, who was for many years the chief of the Tribune’s Washington bureau and one of the last of our true journalists, categorically states that the Tribune in August 1942 cabled Day to return home and that Day elected to remain in Sweden where he then was and asked for leave without pay. He implies that McCormick thereafter abandoned Day and in 1964 refused to listen to Mr. Trohan’s plea that Day be reinstated.
“To my lasting sorrow,” Trohan says, “partly because the editor was preoccupied with his own great man image, … I could not sell my belief that The Tribune owed a measure of justice to a great reporter and a fine man.”
The glimpse of McCormick is bad enough, but it maybe too mild. The late Westbrook Pegler was a newspaper man who held the now obsolete belief that truth is relevant to journalism, and I am proud to have been associated with him in the pages of the late Fred Seelig’s Destroy the Accuser, to which he contributed the preface and I, a terminal commentary. When he heard of the death of Donald Day in Helsinki, he wrote:
“There was never any excuse worth listening to for Robert R. McCormick’s cruelty to Don Day. He just kicked him out, busted and friendless in a strange land and with a devoted blonde Russian wife, a waif of the 1917 Revolution in Petrograd …. McCormick was a really heartless one. He was a pompous fraud.”
Pegler, who had visited the Days in Helsinki and found them living in great poverty, reported that the anti-American government in Washington had been able to blackmail McCormick, who was given to boasting of his military service in the First World War, while the files of the Army contained records that indicated that he had been guilty of cowardice.
That may explain, but cannot palliate, McCormick’s conduct toward his star reporter in Europe, and Pegler concludes,
“I hope Don Day and Don’s wife. Edit, knew the truth in time to appraise this bombastic fake, who exiled them to Finland for the rest of their time on earth out of sheer cruelty.”
Donald Day was one of the last great figures in journalism, as distinct from propaganda. His creed is stated in the present book, from which I quote, tacitly correcting one of the too common typographical errors:
“There is really only one way to handle news. It is to present it as accurately and fairly as possible, or not to publish it at all. Lying is dangerous and reacts against the liar. This was once a platitude in America, but that was before the Jews crossed the Potomac and ensconced Roosevelt in the White House,”
And all of us may be grateful that Day’s book has survived to be published now: it may, perhaps, produce at last some belated reaction against the liars.
THIS FIRST EDITION
The printed text is reproduced from one of the mimeographed copies, but there are some omissions, which I list here for the benefit of those who may not have a mimeographed copy at hand. The numbers in parentheses are the pages of the printed volume; the numbers that follow are the pages of the mimeographed copies that are largely or entirely omitted at that point.
(20) 15-23 (Day’s second chapter, “Permit Me to Introduce Myself,” an autobiographical sketch with some entertaining anecdotes).
(51) 45 (Paragraph omitted to conceal the loss of one page of Day’s text; on the other lost page, see below).
(53) 46-47 (Comment on the German inhabitants of the Baltic states and the Jewish policy of “mongrelizing entire populations”).
(99) 80-81 (Dr. von Alfthan’s analysis of social structures, thus making meaningless the subsequent reference in the printed text to what “Dr. von Alfthan, points out”).
(126) 100-101 (Note on dishonest foreign correspondents, notably the Jew who masqueraded as Eugene Lyons and later found it profitable to masquerade as an “American anti-Communist”; the omission obfuscates the subsequent mention of “Lyons”).
As I have said, two pages were missing from the carbon copy of Day’s manuscript, and the anonymous editor of the printed volume made a particularly inept effort to suture the gap on his page 12. I here quote the, printed text, adding in italics the sentences and paragraphs it omits:
American imperialism is something new, even for Americans. The two chief aims of the Roosevelt Trust are; 1. To reimpose the gold standard on world economy. 2. To restore equality for the Jews in Europe. But equality is hardly the proper word to use. What, is intended is the domination of Jews over Europe.
A few weeks before I became the first American political refugee in Sweden, one of my colleagues gave vie some unsolicited advice. He suggested I should return to America and begin to pull strings to obtain an appointment as American Commissar to the Baltic States when America had
[A page of the author’s manuscript was lost at this point. It clearly included a discussion of the causes of the decline and fall of the American Republic]
of the United States has been in the disinclination of the older types of Americans to take an active part in the governing of their country, Between the the American Civil War and the World War e.q.s.
The editor’s omission of Day’s first point, the reference to the gold standard, seems odd; if he did not understand it, he could have learned from his page 168, where Day explains it in terms that were clear in 1942, but may need some elucidation now.
When the Jews captured the government of the United States in 1933 and installed in the White House a diseased degenerate named Franklin Roosevelt together with a Jew, Rosenman, to tell their stooge what to say and do, one of the first acts of the take-over was to steal the gold of American citizens and to send Federal thugs to rob the sound banks of their gold reserves. The gold standard was, however, maintained in international transactions for the benefit of the Jews and other thieves of international finance. When the German people under Adolf Hitler tried to regain possession of their own country, the world’s parasites at first boasted that their sovereignty over international finance would soon make the Aryan curs again submissive to the masters that Yahweh had set over them; but Germany simply dispensed with the gold standard and prospered mightily, to the amazement and consternation of the international bandits. One object of the Jewish War Against Europe was to restore the dominion of those banking thieves over Germany as over all the countries of the world. The rule of the world by those enemies of civilized mankind is now so consolidated that the function of gold in their schemes has been made obsolete, and the American boobs have been so habituated to the use of counterfeit currency that they do not even notice the omission. But Day’s statement was correct in 1942.
The defects that I have noted above do not seriously impair the value of this extraordinary and extremely valuable book, now printed forty years after it was written.
EUROPE ON THE BRINK OF DISASTER
As I have said, Donald Day was a journalist of singular integrity and courage, and he has left us an invaluable legacy in this summary of his observations of northern Europe during the twenty years of his residence there. These observations include much that is now buried in the yellowing files of the old Chicago Tribune and much that Colonel McCormick did not dare to print.
Day witnessed the birth and the death of three independent nations that are now virtually forgotten: Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania; and he properly stresses the prosperity and culture that was primarily the work of German minorities in each country and proportional to their number: their example brought out the best in the native populations. And Day’s report contains one item that may be a lesson for our more sanguine contemporaries. He observed that in 1939 many Estonians had been made optimistic by propaganda to the effect that the Jews had lost control of the Soviet and that Russians were in power there. They refused to believe the grim fact that “the Soviet government was nothing more than a sadistic Jewish satrapy,” but we may be sure that they changed their minds when they were either massacred or shipped in cattle cars to Russia to be tortured at leisure.
He. witnessed, the heroism of Finland, when that valiant little nation, alone and with no help from what nitwits still call the “free world,” turned back the hordes of Slavic savages that the Jews had sent against it, to the great chagrin of the governments of Great Britain and the United States, : which mouthed hypocritically words of sympathy while intriguing surreptitiously for a Soviet victory to facilitate the attack on Germany which they were planning. The Jews’ slimy stooges in both countries even jabbered about “democracy,” of which Finland was the only example in Europe, with the possible exception of Switzerland. And it is worthy of note that the Finns were sufficiently perspicacious to evade a trap that the British government, with Yiddish morality, set for them.*
* Day failed to note that the member of the British government who boasted of the intended treachery after the scheme failed, Hore-Belisha, was a Jew, not an Englishman.
Day travelled extensively throughout Poland before he was expelled for not lying to please its government. He bears witness to the squalor and depravity of a country in which a city of 600,000, with more than a thousand small factories, had a public water supply but felt no need for sewers — and a large village was content with only one latrine, which was kept clean by the simple expedient of locking it and permitting no one to use it. The peasantry was kept in a state of stupidity, unmitigated ignorance, and utter poverty by cooperation between the Jews, who kept the swindled peasants perpetually and hopelessly in debt, and the Roman Catholic Church, which sucked up what little money their victims had left.
As for the middle and upper classes, I can confirm Day’s account from the unpublished letters of a philologist whose linguistic studies required a prolonged visit to Poland in the 1930s. He commented, inter alia, on the morality of the nation in which divorce was impossible, but God’s Vicar would, for a suitable fee, annul a marriage on the grounds that a woman who had borne three or four children was still a virgin — and do so even without claiming that here miraculous fecundity had been facilitated by the Holy Ghost.*
Day’s observations enable us to understand the imbecility and corruption of a nation which, madly hoping to retain the so-called “Polish Corridor” to harass the Germans with a “wedge of depravity” that bisected the body of the German nation, walked into the trap set for it by Great Britain and the Secret government of the United States. While there probably were intelligent members of the Polish government who had to be bribed to force their country to suicide, others must have believed in both the sincerity of the British promises and Britain’s ability to fulfill them, and that argues a degree of feeble-mindedness that is noteworthy, even in the history of our times.
Day also observed a manifestation of mental debility that will be much less pleasing to the readers of The Liberty Bell, In his time, Sweden was still a racially ‘homogeneous nation, except, of course, for the Jewish infestation, but that almost purely Nordic nation, with the highest standard of living in Europe and exemplary cities and countryside, was also a nation of peace lubbers and world-improvers, living amid childish fantasies and certainly unwilling to look at the real world surrounding it, which its well-fed and charming population may even have been intellectually incapable of comprehending. Today, of course, the larger Swedish cities are overrun by black and brown vermin, but the stolid Nordic minds seem to be still insulated against rational perception of the obvious.
* Lest it be suggested that I take pleasure in the reporting of conditions in modern Poland, I remark that Zygmunt Kaminski’s Niebosk komedja (“The Undevine Comedy”) which I have read only in the English translation by Harriette Kennedy and Zofia Uminska, is one of the great monuments of European literature published in 1834, it was profoundly prophetic, and a reader today may see in the fate of Count Henry a prefigurement of what has now happened to our civilization through the concurrence of ostensibly opposed forces.
Acquaintances of mine, who recently visited relatives in Sweden, including a university professor and a man who held a comparable rank in a technological institute, were constantly exasperated by the obtuseness of minds that could, for example, refuse to recognize the accipitrine visage of a Jew, mumbling idiotically, “He’s not a Jew: he’s a Swede; why, he speaks Swedish perfectly.” And when a blonde slut appears with a nigger on the street, the strongest objurgation is a remark that youth will have its fling.* It is possible, of course, that all Nordics are not so stupid: I am told that Sweden is the European nation in which the largest percentage of the population requires alcoholic consolation for the sorrows of life.
I have tried only to suggest by a few hints the wealth of indispensable historical information that has been, almost providentially, preserved in Donald Day’s book. The only way to understand the present is to retroject oneself, so far as possible, into the decades from which it sprang, and it would be futile to criticize the 1980s without a preliminary understanding of the age, seemingly prosperous but pregnant with calamity, that ran from 1920 to 1940.
In addition to providing you with historical facts, Donald Day’s report cannot fail to stimulate you to a reexamination of one or another of the assumptions that we all take more or less for granted.
We all know, for example, that, with the exception of a very few men like Donald Day, journalists are venal and ready to lie for their paymasters, but many of us cherish the belief that men of letters who have some literary pretensions also have greater integrity. You will find in this book a succinct description of the procedure by which the Bolsheviks bought George Bernard Shaw and were unable to bribe Andre Gide. Now you, no doubt, disapprove of Gide’s sexual habits, but I invite you to consider diligently the question of which of the two men you would regard as the more valuable citizen of his country.
We think of cuckoldry as merely contemptible, but on rereading Day, I wonder whether it may not have political significance. In Day’s estimation, Ulmanis was Latvia’s greatest political leader, but although Ulmanis was cozened by a wily Jew’s humanitarian pretenses, he and the nation were really betrayed by his closest friend, Wilhelm Munters, a hybrid of mixed Estonian and German-Balt ancestry, who was oddly content with a wife who notoriously practiced polyandry. In Lithuania, Professor Waldemaras represented the nation’s best political brains, but he preferred to make President a male named Smetona, who eventually deposed and imprisoned him. Smetona rejoiced in the affections of an energetic and pious wife, who was kept warm at night by a Jesuit, thoughtfully provided by the Catholic Church, although some members of its hierarchy deemed that way to political power inadvisable.
* It may be worthy of note that “Swedish Erotica” is the term used to denote choice items in the wares peddled by the Jews who dominate the highly lucrative business of pornography, and that some of them assume Swedish names. One of the earliest films, which was actually made in Sweden and imported to educate our youth, had a scene in which a blonde, attractive, and obviously moronic Swedish girl was shown sitting in rapt and quasi-religious veneration before a shrine that bore a photograph of America’s most distinguished automobile thief and rapist, a black beast named King, who was later sacrificed by our enemies to help incite riots and demonstrate what craven rabbits white men have become. Contemplation of the foul animal presumably inspired the empty-headed female on the road to liberated whoredom in the film.
And there are some nice sidelights on the debris of the American Republic. In Poland, for example, there was a Jew named Nowinski, who was a part-time reporter, supplying lies to gullible newspapers, a leading pimp, the owner of two brothels, and a notorious sadist, taking an obscene delight in watching the suffering of animals and, when possible, human beings. Since he suspected that his talents would not commend him to the Germans, he fled to the United States, where his admirable qualities earned him a post in the F.B.I, under the aegis of that great humanitarian, Frankie Roosevelt. America is, indeed, the Land of Opportunity — for her enemies.
And I almost forgot that Day observed in the early 1930s the germ of the Holohoax that our domestic enemies are now trying to make it illegal for Americans, not to believe. The American Embassy in Warsaw was constantly besieged by hordes of Jews yammering for a visa to enter the United States and start eating on Americans. It required a staff of sixty to deal with them, and every evening the Embassy’s waiting room had to be deloused. The disgusted American staff probably used an insecticide less efficient than the famous Zyklon B which the Germans used in an attempt to avert epidemics of typhus in the concentration camps by delousing the Jews (and Poles) confined in them. That, of course, was the basis for the fictitious “Holocaust” and the pretext for the vile murders committed by the American Huns in Nuremberg to please their owners. It is possible, of course, that body lice are also Yahweh’s favorites, but, so far as I know, it has not yet been thought expedient to claim that millions of God’s Own Children were exterminated in the American Embassy in Warsaw. I do not venture to predict, however, what the future may not bring.
by Prof. Revilo P. Oliver
My review of Donald Day’s “Onward, Christian Soldiers” in “Liberty Bell,” January 1983, requires correction at three points.
When I wrote, I did not know that Day’s book, in a more complete form, had been published in Sweden in 1944. The parts missing in English were translated from the Swedish version by Paul Knutson in “The Rest of Donald Day,” “Liberty Bell,” June 1984, and reprinted as a separate booklet.
In his introduction to “Onward, Christian Soldiers,” Walter Trohan reported that he had vainly tried to obtain for Day a modicum of justice from an editor of the “Chicago Tribune,” who refused because he was “preoccupied with his own great man image.” I naturally took this to be a reference to the famous Colonel Robert McCormick, the owner and publisher of the “Tribune,” which was the foremost American newspaper during his lifetime, although under his successors it so deteriorated that today it is little better than its competitor, the “Sun-Times,” which is now owned by a Jew named Murdoch. Colonel McCormick was naturally proud of his accomplishment and justifiably thought of himself as a great man in an age of pygmies, and it seemed to men who had been associated with the “Tribune,” as it did to me, that Trohan’s phrase must be a reference to McCormick, and that the chronological difficulty was simply the result of a printer’s error.
Investigation, however, showed that Mr. Trohan was still alive, although the person who answered inquiries about him in the offices of the “Tribune” seemed not to know it, and Mr. Trohan said that he had referred to one Donald Maxwell, who inexplicably became an editor of the “Tribune” after the death of the Colonel, and who, strange as it seems, did cultivate a “great man image.” Well, Pekinese never mistake themselves for Great Danes, but human beings have imaginations that can do unbelievable things for them.
In my review, I quoted the late Westbrook Pegler’s disparaging remarks about Colonel McCormick, whom he accused of “cruelty to Donald Day” and of being “a pompous fraud,” with the implication that he was subject to blackmail by the alien government in Washington because the files of the Army contained a record of cowardice. That may be a more serious error.
A friend has written me about a purported biography of Colonel McCormick recently published at Carpentersville, Illinois, “Poor Little Rich Boy,” by Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Veysey, who were at one time on the staff of the “Chicago Tribune”. It is, my friend says, an odd book and omits some very important episodes in the career of its subject, containing, for example, no mention of Donald Day and no mention of Colonel McCormick’s close and trusted associate, the late Frank Hughes, the author of “Prejudice and the Press” (New York, Devin-Adair, 1950), a fundamental study of the corruption of the American press at that time. My friend believes that what happened to the “Tribune” during the “near anarchy” that followed the death of its renowned publisher “would make Watergate look like the theft of an eraser from a kindergarten classroom,” and that the odd omissions in the new biography conceal clues to a major scandal.
The biography does contain mention of an incident that may be the source of Pegler’s remark. It appears that when Colonel McCormick in 1915 visited, as an American observer, the front lines in France that were being defended by the British Army, he was escorted by Field Marshall Sir John French to a position near Arras that was being held by a detachment of the celebrated Coldstream Guards. When the German artillery began a heavy bombardment of that position, the British officers were astonished to see the tall American colonel bolt for cover. Mr. and Mrs. Veysey quote Colonel McCormick’s account of the incident, without indication of their source: I was very much afraid. I did not resist by a very large margin my desire to ask my conductor to move to a safe place. This confession is not easy to make, but is put down with the hope that other boys will be instructed in courage as I never was. I never did learn to enjoy the crash of shells nor was I overwhelmed with a desire to rush into a shower of machine-gun fire. But I never again approached the point of disgracing myself on the firing line. Physical courage varies with the individual but can be improved, like piano playing and polite conversation, and is a more desirable accomplishment for a man than either. We in America have got to teach courage and not cowardice.
The confession, evidently made publicly in writing or in a radio broadcast, does evince one kind of courage. If this is all that Pegler had as a basis for his implication, he was wrong. A man cannot be blackmailed for what he has publicly admitted.
The question whether Colonel McCormick did or did not secretly give some support to his greatest foreign correspondent after the latter was marooned in Finland by the crypto-Jewish government of the United States remains unresolved. It is, of course, possible that the Colonel did arrange to have money sent to Donald Day, necessarily through devious channels, as Mr. Hughes believed, and that the remittances were intercepted by amateur or governmental thieves.

he doesn’t like Jews.
By Eric “Love Reading” on January 29, 2015
Having read the book, lets be real. Day has the guts to name names, not just “stereotypes.” But as he points out, he was there … for 25 years!. Some will label him an Anti-Semite, true I must admit, but he is also critical of other governments, not just Jewish Bolsheviks. He bashes on Catholic Priests running Poland too, even though his sister is known as a Catholic activist. Yes, agree, he doesn’t like Jews … and at times his writing is what today we would call racist. But as he says in his chapter titles “Jews”, he went to the 1932 World Zionist conference, and asked the Jews there who were talking about how everyone hates them, as to WHY? And asked them to “face squarely the problem of their unpopularity.” Well, he gives some substantiated facts in the book, FIRST and foremost, the utter brutality, ruthlessness and failure of the Jewish Bolsheviks in Russia who by most historical accounts killed between 40 and 60 million Christians. The thesis of his book, regardless of his racism tone, is that Jewish led Bolshevism (Communism) WAS the greatest threat to Europe and mankind leading up to and including WWII.

Soldiers Against Jewish Bolshevism
By john thames “scholar1” on February 13, 2013
“Onward Christian Soldiers” is one of the few “on-site” observations of the German-Soviet conflict. Day avoided trouble with the American authorities by siding with the Germans only on the events of the Eastern front. He remained completely silent on the German war with the Americans. As several other reviewers have noted, Communism in Russia and Europe generally was a purely Jewish phenomenon. Day, stationed in Riga, Latvia, was able to observe “up close” the faces of the Jewish commissars. He could see entire Jewish communities greet the invading Communists — and don commissars uniforms to aid them after the occupation. Naturally, Day was very sympathetic to the Germans invasion of the Soviet Union. His publisher, the Chicago Times of Colonel Robert McCormick, shared his views but sometimes had to censor his dispatches because of fear of the economic power of Chicago Jewry.
“Onward Christian Soldiers” will give the reader an alternative view of a still controversial view of history. It is highly reccomended.

Anti Semitic Propaganda
By Julie Raymond on March 26, 2012
Be aware that Donald Day was a self acknowledged Jew hater and proud anti-semite. His book is not a balanced account of the war against communism but a nasty, hate filled and paranoid work of fake journalism. He accuses everyone from Roosevelt on down of being a communist and glories in the ugliest stereotypes of Jews. This book should be read as the anti-semitic propaganda it is and not as a work of journalism.
The murder of innocents
By Romāns Sēja on 15 Jan. 2015
@ Julie Raymond – My father was a witness to the events in Riga even to the demonstration lead by rich Jews carrying placards “Give you bread” welcoming the invading communists. He lived opposite the NKVD murder dungeons in Rīga and saw the innocents being lead to their torture and murder never to exit alive. The writings of Day are a truthful account.

A welcome view from the other side
By Eleoson May 15, 2010
I strongly recommend this book as an antidote to the conventional popular histories of WWII. Many will find it shocking at first, but should finish it before passing judgement. One of the three clichés about war is that history is written by the victors, and this is probably more true of the Second World War than any other. The book paints a picture of civilisation, as Day sees it, under threat from Bolshevism, which is, in its founders and intellectual proponents, mainly a Jewish affair. We who grew up in the post-war period have been taught to believe that the Germans were antisemitic with little explanation of their motives other than some inherent fault. Onward Christian Soldiers suggests that there was a lengthy and involved conflict between German nationalism, the desire to unite German speakers and celebrate what they had in common, and Communism or Bolshevism which saw similarities between people because of their shared ancestry as a hindrance to uniting all peoples of the world under one ideology.

Well worth a read
By A Customer on December 11, 2002
The Chicago Tribune’s northern Europe correspondent from 1920-40, Day used his base in Riga, Latvia to report unflinchingly on the realities of Soviet tyranny and Red subversion in the Baltic. Banned from entering the USSR, fired from the Tribune at the instance of the U.S. State Department, Day threw in his lot with the brave Finns and their German allies during their anti-Bolshevist crusade. Onward Christian Soldiers bristles with Day’s insights and reminiscences of northern Europe — Scandinavia, Germany, Poland, Danzig, Lithuania, and his beloved Latvia, Estonia, and Finland in the years between the wars. With an introduction by legendary Tribune correspondent Walter Trohan, Onward Christian Soldiers pulls no punches on the Jewish role in Communism and on Britain and America’s hypocrisy in posing as defenders of Christian civilization.
