Rethinking the Good War is a perfect read for those who consider WWII a necessary war, who think that politicians sincerely try to keep us out of war, and who also still believe in the tooth fairy.
In addition to this book, I recommend (especially for Christians) The Myth of the Just Price and the Biblical Case for Laissez Faire, as well as War, Foreign Policy, and the Church. Both of these are short, easy reads. You will find yourself thinking, "Well, gee, I know that!" And you do know it. You've just been propagandized. It's ok. You'll get over it. Maybe you'll recover enough to read Vance's Christianity and War and Other Essays Against the Warfare State -- a much larger book and a harder pill to swallow. But it's a red pill, so fear not.
