Editor says, in reality Ribbentrop left Canada when World War I began. In May 1925 Ribbentrop persuaded his aunt Gertrud von Ribbentrop to adopt him in May 1925, which allowed him to add the aristocratic von to his name. Many times he said he wished Hitler could have stood at the Mansion House where he would have understood the meaning of the British Empire. Editorial comments are entered in [light green] typeface.
