Hoover and Other Historians on America's Role in World War II

As ever more historians acknowledge, President Franklin Roosevelt broke the law and lied to the American people in a deceitful campaign to promote war in Europe, and then to get the US to join in the "Good War" against Germany. "Freedom Betrayed," the recently published book by former US President Herbert Hoover, is yet another authoritative debunking of the prevailing, official view of the US role in World War II. America's purported role as the world's "leader," with the right to prod other countries into conforming with US policies and interests, was laid down in the years just before and during World War II by the US government, with critical backing by Hollywood and the American mass media.
