5.0 out of 5 stars Game over. 2 Nov 2010
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
Game over, job done. What a book! Seven years of research into the truth of the Holocaust and eventually this book was published to summarise all the well known facts and issues on the matter. Calmly and scientifically the author worked his way through the big points like a top barrister in a court room battle. The bottom line is that yes there was a holocaust, the jews were indeed targeted, brutalised and mistreated. But no six million deaths or anything like that figure. Probably one million (though that of course was a million too many). It's been a con all along and now they have been exposed. So what happens now then? Will they give back the billions of dollars??? Great book well written and the perfect first stage if you are looking to understand the issues, or in my case last book, as I now conclude my research. I know the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth needs no law to support it 12 Feb 2010
Format:Perfect Paperback
Even denial of the existence of god is not punishable under current laws. Yet this particular aspect of history is not open for question or debate, and IS reinforced by laws. Why?

One would have thought that the very existence of laws banning the dissemination of such information at all, anywhere, should be enough to have most supposedly intelligent people running for the nose plugs, but it seems we're so far gone in a make-believe world of "Homeland Security", "Al Qaeda" and "debt is money" that the masses have lost the ability to question, far less hold to account, the people who control their lives.

Any truth - or should that be "truth" - which needs to be enforced by law is by its very nature not truth at all - for if it were truth there would be no need for enforcement. Never has been, never will be.

Truth is simple, and it simply is. It's what happened. And what actually happened is always believable, even if sometimes worthy of further examination. It is only when man becomes involved that "what really happened" becomes distorted and no longer fully believable. This particular story - and let us be absolutely clear about this, it IS a story - is quite simply not believable. It has none of the hallmarks of a true story - the fact that 60 years after the event there are still huge doubts and very little (if any) actual evidence worthy of the name are fitting testament of this. This is exactly why it needs laws to support it. And thus we have our confirmation, if such is needed by any free-thinking human being in the enlightened 21st Century: the story is simply not true.

A superb and easy to read overview of the main points of the "Great Debate" ("Great Refusal To Debate"?); balanced, thoughtful and very thorough. A sterling job, Mr. Dalton.

Format:Perfect Paperback
Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides By Thomas Dalton

In this remarkable, balanced book, the author skillfully reviews and compares "traditional" and "revisionist" views on the "The Holocaust."

On one side is the traditional, orthodox view -- six million Jewish casualties, gas chambers, cremation ovens, mass graves, and thousands of witnesses. On the other is the view of a small band of skeptical writers and researchers, often unfairly labeled "deniers," who contend that the public has been gravely misled about this emotion-laden chapter of history.

The author establishes that the arguments and findings of revisionist scholars are substantive, and deserve serious consideration. He points out, for example, that even the eminent Jewish Holocaust scholar Raul Hilberg acknowledged that there was no budget, plan or order by Hitler for a World War II program to exterminate Europe's Jews.

This book is especially relevant right now, as "Holocaust deniers" are routinely and harshly punished for their "blasphemy," and as growing numbers of people regard the standard, Hollywoodized "Holocaust" narrative with mounting suspicion and distrust.

The author of this book, who writes under the pen name of "Thomas Dalton," is an American scholar who holds a doctoral degree from a major US university.

This is no peripheral debate between arcane views of some obscure aspect of twentieth century history. Instead, this is a clash with profound social-political implications regarding freedom of speech and press, the manipulation of public opinion, how our cultural life is shaped, and how power is wielded in our society.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful points that are difficult to refute 11 April 2014
Format:Perfect Paperback|Verified Purchase
Clearly, Mr Pearce's review here is unencumbered by having actually read the book. Other negative comments are similarly clearly based on prejudice. If one depends for truth on the pronouncements of judges in court, then you are on a very sticky wicket...

If TD is an alias, then I don't blame the author for using one - just putting an alternative analysis is enough to lose a job, or even one's liberty.

Don't fall for the hysterical (and protected) Wiki / History Channel / story but read this book and decide (think) for yourself. You will be glad you did. Revisionist research is solid. Traditionalism behaves like an overgrown child; shouting and threatening. Of what, I wonder, are they afraid. Actually, I don't wonder. Truth has a habit of winning out in the end. Well worth a read...
