The end and the beginning / Hermynia Zur Mühlen -- 1950 supplement to Ende und Anfang / Hermynia Zur Mühlen -- Notes on persons and events mentioned in the memoir -- Remembering Hermynia Zur Mühlen: a tribute / Lionel Gossman -- Works by Hermynia Zur Mühlen in English translation.
"Born in 1883 into a distinguished and wealthy aristocratic family of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire, Hermynia Zur Mühlen rejected her upbringing to pursue a career as a professional writer. She documents her extraordinary life in this lively and personal memoir, first published in Germany in 1929. This revised and corrected translation -- with extensive notes and an essay on the author by Lionel Gossman -- will appeal especially to readers interested in womens history, World War I, and the culture and politics of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries"--Publisher's description.
