"Here ends the second of the three novels on the historian Flavius Josephus . The novel "Josephus" was originally intended to contain only two parts. The second, final volume was sketched out to the end & a part of it written in 1932, when the first published. But when the National Socialists looted my house in March, 1933, they destroyed the manuscript of that final volume, as well as the historical material that was also there. To restore the lost part in its original form proved to be impossible. I had learned a great deal more about the theme of "Josephus" - Nationalism & world-citizenship - the material burst its earlier mould, & I was compelled to divide it into three volumes." - L.F. “The second volume of the trilolgy of which Josephus was the first.
