It's terrific to have this wonderful book back in print which tells how General Smedley Butler was the savior of our Republic from a fascist plot by plutocratic militarists in the early 1930s. Archer is featured in The History Channel documentary, The Plot To Overthrow FDR, a concise summation of this exceptional book."
"One of the most important books you will ever read!

"Excellent video based on Jules Archer's brilliant book, The Plot To Seize The White House, details the Wall Street/American Legion attempted fascist coup d'etat against FDR heroically exposed by Smedley Darlington Butler. Jules Archer is featured in this History Channel documentary as the major historical expert on this true conspiracy.
"Rothbard provides the fascinating background to the fierce internecine warfare between the elite Morgan and Rockefeller/Kuhn-Loeb/Harriman financial blocs central to the anti-FDR Wall Street plot exposed by Butler. The New Deal was an alliance of major financial forces against the reigning empire of the House of Morgan. The Morgans and their corporate allies, such as the Du Ponts, sought revenge."
"As with George Washington, we may say of Major General Smedley Darlington Butler, that he was "First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen." Hans Schmidt's fine biography has much richness and detail not found in other volumes on Butler, and places him in the historical context of his times."
"Antony Sutton provides an alternative perspective on the attempted Wall Street coup d'etat by plutocratic militarists during the early New Deal of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Was the Wall Street-connected FDR an acquiescent participant in this domestic conspiracy? Was he witting or unwilling to go along with the plotters?"
"Investigative journalist George Seldes was one of the few courageous reporters to continue to uncover the shocking story of the Wall Street plot against FDR. Seldes names names, dates, and details of the powerful men who pushed for a corporatist fascist state in America."
"Legendary investigative reporter George Seldes looks at the men, money and media behind fascism in America. He reviews the documented facts concerning the attempted Wall Street coup d'etat against FDR which were supressed by the major Establishment media such as The New York Times or Time Magazine."
"Excellent reference on American corporate/banking cooperation with Nazi Germany before and during WWII. Higham discusses the Wall Street fascist plot against FDR exposed by Smedley Darlington Butler. Dedicated to investigative journalist George Seldes."
"Fascinating new vehicle to introduce the "amazing true story" of Smedley Darlington Butler to a new audience. I bought this for my teenage grandson thinking this "Pulp History" would be perfect for him but the content and reading level is definitely for older audiences."
