Customer Review

on November 18, 2012
Stone and Kuznick have written a valuable companion and counterpoint to the woefully incomplete version of history we are taught in schools. The fact that much of what is inside this book is old hat to real students of history but new (and perhaps threatening) to the public at large is proof that feel-good political correctness exists for conservatives too and that this feel-good political correctness is the real scourge of public education. Kuznick and Stone didn't write this book to tell us that we, as Americans, can't have heroes. They are simply of the opinion and desire that General Patton should share the perch with figures like Henry Wallace and that the initial assessment of Harry Truman's abilities by his contemporaries proved to be correct. So, don't listen to the howling from the Right about Stone and Kuznick "hating America". Even if true patriotism really does mean loving your country regardless of whether it's wrong or right, there's still no shame in voicing a strong preference for right. More than anything that is what Stone and Kuznick are trying to tell us.
