From the acclaimed author of New Deal or Raw Deal?, an eye-opening (National Review) expos of FDRs destructive wartime policies.
WAS FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT REALLY A GREAT WARTIME LEADER, AS HISTORIANS ALMOST UNANIMOUSLY ASSERT?
The acclaimed author of New Deal or Raw Deal?, called eye-opening by the National Review, exposes the negative impact of FDRs destructive wartime legacy on Americas economic and foreign policies today.
History books tell us the World War II economy was a boon, ending the Great Depression thanks to massive government spending. But the skyrocketing national debt, food rations, crippling taxes, and labor strikes of the time tell a story that is hardly the stuff of recovery. Instead, Roosevelts poor judgment and confused management left Congress with a devastating fiscal mess after the final bomb was dropped and ushered in a new era of imperialism for the executive branch. In this provocative book, Burton W. Folsom and Anita Folsom make a stunning case that will force America to take a second look at one of its most complicated presidents.
