THE SILENT PEOPLE SPEAK (397 pp.)—Robert St. John—Doubleday ($4).

In 1942, A.P. Correspondent Robert St. John wrote From the Land of Silent People, a first-rate reporter's account of the Axis invasion of Yugoslavia and Greece. He followed up his success by becoming a novelist (It's Always Tomorrow'), popular lecturer and radio commentator, received the accolade of the Left when he was dropped by NBC last year because, in pinko PM's opinion at least, he was "too liberal." Now, St. John has written one of the longest (210,000 words) studies of Yugoslavia since Rebecca West's Black Lamb and Grey Falcon.
