5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice addition to my WWII collection, November 30, 2007
This review is from: Friendly Fire: The Secret War Between the Allies (Hardcover)
Friendly Fire is an excellent book to expand your knowledge of what went on behind the scenes of WWII. It describes the motivations and actions of FDR, Churchill and Stalin from a decidedly British point of view. One often wonders why FDR allowed Stalin to occupy Eastern Europe and he and Truman allowed the Communists to take over China. Apparently, either FDR was naive, a Communist sympathizer, was duped by Stalin's spies in his administration, or merely saw Communism as an improvement over European colonialism. However, while colonialism resulted in the deaths of perhaps 50 million natives...Communism resulted in the deaths of 162 million worldwide. You can lay that right at FDR's doorstep.

However, once you dig a little deeper into the background of WWII you see that British and American finance funded the Bolshevik Revolution, Hitler's rise to power, as well as FDR's election. In this regard I also recommend Conjuring Hitler: How Britain And America Made the Third Reich, the "Wall Street and ..." trilogy by Antony Sutton, The Transfer Agreement: The Dramatic Story of the Pact Between the Third Reich and Jewish Palestine, and "The Chief Culprit: Stalin's Grand Design to Start World War II"

This was a good review and gives readers a dose of poltical and historical reality.

I am sorry but saying US/UK finance funded FDR's election and leaving it at that is a horrible misdeed to truth and perception. First of all, US finance funds part of all elections, useless point. Second and more importantly, the oligarchy of Morgan/Mellon/Rockefeller (US agents of London) interests tried to assassinate FDR in Miami in 1933. That failed and they then tried a fascist (they were fascists who funded Mussolini/Hitler, US 1930's fascist propaganda, Liberty League B.S., etc...) coup against FDR using the patriotic General Smedley Butler who ratted on them and blew the operation in favor of America and the Constitution. It is dishonest at best to say FDR was some kind of oligarchical stooge. He was opposed at every corner by "US/UK finance" and had a terribly untimely death which enabled the bastard Truman to destroy FDR's post-war plans.

Sorry but FDR is simply not what is portrayed by the insinuation of your review, he was concretely a revival of the Washington/Hamilton and Lincoln/Carey fields of American nationalism and economics against the British empire's treachery. Bad propaganda is spewed by fascists and libertarians to make strong pro-constitutional moves by FDR look like he was a dictator. Instead, he was acting in full compliance of the Constitution for the "general welfare" of the population. When someone does that, you earn the hatred of the finance oligarchy.
