It is unbelievable how Washington was under such control by the Russians. Also, read "Blacklisted By History" and "The Forgotten 500" toget a more complete history.

When I found this book a few years ago at a library book sale, I had NO IDEA about these goings on.

I strongly recommend everyone read this book and look up related material on the internet and now, on Amazon. There are many many books that back up what Mr. Jordan stated and has written.

In fact, someone just recently posted on youtube an audiofile of a talk Mr. Jordan gave.

Just listen to it.

Format: Paperback
The author Charles Racey Jordan wrote in the Preface to this 1952 book (which was republished as #4 in the John Birch Society's "Americanist Library"), "I went into the Army as a businessman in my forties and a veteran of World War I... I worked wholeheartedly on behalf of the Russians because, like everyone else, I considered it my duty to do so." He states that "My reason for writing this book is... I want to put in permanent form the full story of my experiences as a Lend-Lease expediter and liaison officer with the Russians during the war."

He states frankly that we never knew the exact use to which ANYTHING sent under Russian Lend-Lease was put, and the failure to set up an system of accountability is now seen to have been "an appalling mistake." (Pg. 15) He notes that even items such as cigarette cases, phonograph records, lipsticks, fishing tackle, dolls, playground equipment, etc., were sent to the Russians and paid for by Lend-Lease. (Pg. 68)

Concerning the development of the atomic bomb by the Russians after the war, he says, "That the Russians found out everything from alpha to omega, has been established by volumes of proof." (Pg. 56)

He observes that "the only freedom of religion tolerated by Communism is freedom to serve as an organ of the state; and that Communist cooperation with any creed is impossible save on terms of overlord and vassal." (Pg. 125)

This book is an interesting "insider's" perspective of this period.

This is an interesting account by a U.S. Army Officer in charge of helping the flow of "Lend-Lease" material to the Soviet Union during World War Two. He discovered that much more was headed to the Soviets then what the US public thought. Eventually he tried to alert the officials in the U.S. goverment about what was going on and was told to keep quiet or he'd be shipped to "an island in the South Pacfic". This book seems to confirm that Harry Hopkins and FDR had loyalties to the USSR.
This book has helped change the way I see World War 2 and the post-war world. There was a lot more going on then just fighting the Germans and Japanese. I wish every American could read this book. It makes one wonder what has been going on in the years since the war ended in 1945. This is a great book.
