Editorial Reviews

A cabal of financiers and industrialists, alarmed by FDR's economic policies in the Depression, plotted to create a fascist state. Their choice of retired Marine General Smedley Butler to lead an army of disgruntled WWI vets proved their undoing. When Smedley learned details of the conspiracy, he reported the lot to Congress.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-See Slice of Overlooked History August 18, 2006
Verified Purchase
Almost no one realizes there was a planned corporate coup to take over the government during the New Deal years. This little-known episode during the Depression is vividly recounted in this fine documentary.

This documentary was very well done. It relates an important and often forgotten part of our history which has been swept under the rug for decades. A must see for anyone serious about American history. I was impressed when I first saw it on the history channel, and I'm sad that they won't air pieces like this anymore. Thank goodness their thirst for profits is still unabated. It provides a decent summary of the relevant literature and evidence. The books are available cheaper, but the this format makes the content easier to digest for most people. Pricey for a one hour video, but worth it in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare Discussion March 2, 2013
By S.H.
Verified Purchase
A 1934 plot to overthrow the US government perpetrated by some of the most powerful people in Wall Street and media. Though the documentary seems afraid to connect some obvious dots at feature`s end, the subject is an amazingly revealing lesson in true power, and quite resonant to the modern day.

This should be a required subject of study in every school.

5.0 out of 5 stars a stellar documentary about hidden U.S. history August 3, 2012
This documentary interviews Jules Archer, the author of the great history book, THE PLOT TO SEIZE THE WHITE HOUSE, and supplements that account, with other historians, and with 1930s film footage and photos of principal characters, and of the secret congressional investigation that confirmed the plot. Shown are Smedley Darlington Butler, Douglas MacArthur, Irenee DuPont, and other principals.

The documentary is chronological and thereby provides a better sense of the reasons why things happened than does any other account, even including Archer's book. For example, this documentary makes clear why retaining the gold standard was central to the plotters' objectives.
