Editorial Reviews

A cabal of financiers and industrialists, alarmed by FDR's economic policies in the Depression, plotted to create a fascist state. Their choice of retired Marine General Smedley Butler to lead an army of disgruntled WWI vets proved their undoing. When Smedley learned details of the conspiracy, he reported the lot to Congress.

Almost no one realizes there was a planned corporate coup to take over the government during the New Deal years. This little-known episode during the Depression is vividly recounted in this fine documentary.

This documentary was very well done. It relates an important and often forgotten part of our history which has been swept under the rug for decades. A must see for anyone serious about American history. I was impressed when I first saw it on the history channel, and I'm sad that they won't air pieces like this anymore. Thank goodness their thirst for profits is still unabated. It provides a decent summary of the relevant literature and evidence. The books are available cheaper, but the this format makes the content easier to digest for most people. Pricey for a one hour video, but worth it in my opinion.

Very interesting documentary. Provides an event in history I would like to check out and learn more about. This DVD gives basic information on a piece of history. It does not state their was definitely a plot to overthrow FDR by upper class Americans--- but does present a case that needs to be more fully explored. Recommend this documentary.

A little known, and even less talked/taught about piece of our nations history; In one respect, the inevitable loss of Americans to own gold (1933), AND the implementation of obvious socialist programs in lieu of a free market paved the way for "needed" changes in the American way of life. During this time frame a private banking cartel (the Federal Reserve) took over our Congress's ability/responsibility to coin our money, AND, the implementation of the IRS (internal revenue system) changed the basic rights, responsibilities, and obligations of every United States citizen for the worse. This is a very interesting but in my opinion, slanted view of that time in our history, with no mention of the true cost to Americans then, and now.
