Although the book was written in the 50's, most of the information is totally relevant today and although back then it wasn't foreseen the fall of the Soviet Union, it is very easy to put everything in context. With that out of the way, the book is excellent. It starts with the historic background of WW1 and WW2 from a perspective not often discussed here but covering from the times of the knights, the rise of Bolshevism and communism, to the aftermath of WW2 and then to his prediction of a strong possibility of a WW3 with a middle east battlefield as the starting point. A lot of historical facts are brought up that are hardly found in any publication today, which is easy to see why, as this same author points out, that there is a media and history black-out. After all, "Truth is always the first casualty of war". Of special interest to me was the connection between the Soviet Bolshevik and the USA government, and how it has endured till today by implanting itself in the USA political body but specially in our foreign policy, the same way they did in the Soviet Union right before taking over! Furthermore, Information that has been declassified since the writing of this book have supported and confirmed everything the author wrote. This book is essential in understanding a big part of this conflict and the forces behind it. A great, factual, well-documented work that should be read by everyone.

I could go on and on about this book, but would fall short of its praises. I am a veteran of the armed forces, a Christian, and a patriot of this once great nation. It is not too late to turn the downward spiral we are in around, but one must know where it is coming from. We as citizens have been along for the ride way too long with a mismanaged government of the past and present. This book is fully referenced on all material. Material is from men and women throughout the government agencies and branches and from some of out greatest military leaders of the century. All in the position to know and provide documents,insight and knowlege as to the source of the cancer eating away our Great Nation from the inside out.
Colonel John Beaty's book is truly remarkable. The man is a scholar, a soldier, and, clearly, a devoted Christian. In his magnificient work, Beaty exposes the long term enmity of the Khazar people for the Russians, its impact and resolution in the Bolshevik Revolution, and the influence of these same Khazars on American foreign policy within the Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman administrations. Further, Beaty elucidates the motives behind the crazy hodge podge of Truman administration foreign policy in the post World War II period and prophetically analyzes the roles of MacArthur and Eisenhower. Keep in mind that this book was written in advance of the 1952 election season, which saw the elite come to support Eisenhower in order to prevent the election of MacArthur and Taft.
In the corpus of this excellent manuscript, Beaty does make the following observation. In 1940, the World Almanac listed the world Jewish population at 15,319,359. The same publication in 1949 listed the world Jewish population at 15,713,638. As six million were alleged to have died during the "Holocaust", the reader is invited to reach their own conclusion.
Beaty writes with the passion of a soldier and a compassionate leader of men in desribing the Korean conflict, its sabatoge by the Truman administration, and the terrible toll this subterfuge represented. In this, today, one is, of necessity, reminded of the ongoing tragedy in Iraq.
This is an excellent and terribly important book. Pick it up and give it a read with open heart and open mind. You will be informed and renewed.
This book contains an incredible ammount of crucial information regarding U.S. foreign and internal policies. As a student of modern History, I spent a year writing a theses on this book. John Beaty hits the hot spot, and as incredible as it might sound, he illustrates his points with documented facts.

I read most of the book and found nothing about any holocaust hoax mentioned by reviewer "ruggero." Looking in the index showed no listing for the word holocaust at all. It might be in there somewhere, but I doubt it. The author seems too smart and too honest to deny the genocide against the Jews and numerous others in Hitler's regime. What I did find were plenty of impressively documented pieces of evidence that both FDR and Truman knowingly allowed communists to crawl throughout their administrations, even up to the level of positions advising the president. Furthermore, it's rather obvious that Truman passively helped the communist forces of Mao tse Tung take over the nation of China. He did that by cutting off aid to the Nationalists. Before that of course he winked while Stalin scooped up all of Eastern Europe. Great book, important work, should be a part of everyone's library for quotes and reference value. Plus America needs to become more informed so we can combat the enemies of truth, those infesting and controlling the Democratic party and the mainstream news networks. Yes, that makes me sound like a conspiracy nut. The problem is, if there really were a conspiracy, what would we call the people who figure it out? That's me, nut or whatever.
