(1871-1935) German historian, newspaper editor and author, known in English for two pseudonymous works of fiction. In "1906" – Der Zusammenbruch der alten Welt (1905; trans G Herring as Armageddon 190- 1907) as by Seestern, the USA instigates a Future War with Germany which is catastrophic for Europe but beneficial for Russia and the USA. Bansai! (1908; trans anon as Banzai! 1908) as by Parabellum pits the USA against the Japanese, with results initially disastrous for the USA, though the invading armies of the East are eventually driven all the way back past the Rocky Mountains to the sea.
