Anyone that has ever questioned whether actions have consequences even in foreign policy;
Anyone who might suspect that political leaders may not value your life quite as much as you do;
Anyone who has ever wondered whether many of the monsters America has had to go abroad to slay may have partially resulted from previous American monster slaying crusades;
Anyone that thinks Bill O’Reilly is pompous or anyone mesmerized by his massive forehead;
Anyone who thinks that Allan Combs is creepy and looks like the guidance counselor from South Park;
Anyone that has the utmost respect for the sacrifices of well-intending soldiers seeking to protect liberty but may have some reservations about accepting the pure intentions of the powerful elites who put those soldiers in harm’s way;
Anyone that has secretly wondered whether it was absolutely necessary to American security for Truman to mass murder incomprehensible numbers of Japanese civilians with the most devastating weapon ever known;
Anyone that has ever noticed that we must be reminded of Hitler’s atrocities on an almost daily basis but rarely hear the fellow travelers in the media and academia mention (Allied) Stalin’s numerically worse murderous attrocities;
Anyone interested in human freedom;
or anyone who has even the slightest curiosity about anything at all.
There is a fifty page essay on Churchill that pretty much destroys the commonly held view that this was the "man of many centuries." Later in the book a chapter on the Nazifying of Germany shows how easy it has been for those wishing to kill off western civilization to extrapolate hatred of Germans to hatred of all white nations, this leading to the conclusion that our civilization is in its last days.
The book is an easy and quick read and for those of us who are cafeteria readers, jumping around in a book rather than going cover to cover, the different and varied chapters are a nice amenity.
Now I admit to having become a revision and for that reason alone I would give the book five stars as it agrees with my now world view. But still the chapter on Churchill by itself is worth the price of the book.
A final note, the copy I received was the large print edition, if you don't want that please check carefully.
The footnotes are plentiful and gives a new look into Churchill who is deified on both sides of the pond.The book reads at a quick pace and doesn't come across as a history book,always a good thing with this type of book.This is a great book at a great price, for those wishing to take a chance on a different viewpoint
