A very interesting, and well written, book that gives an added take on the origins of WW2 with a description of the, largely unknown or forgotten, battle at Nomonhan and its affect on the policies of Japan, USSR and Germany leading to the decisions taken by the leaders of these countries that plunged the world into WW2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zionism and the U.S.A., 21 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very interesting, if short, book on the efforts of Zionists to create the state of Israel. The most interesting part of the book, for me, is the evidence of the efforts taken by Zionists to persuade the U.S.A. to enter the First World War and thus, seemingly, a reason for the deep hatred of Jews by Germans after the war.
I had always seen the U.S.A's acceptance, by Truman, as purely a political reason and was surprised to read that the State Department's objections were overridden. Subsequent Presidents have often used the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as a sounding board for Middle East policy. (Check out the number of times that presidential candidates, both Democrat and Republican, address AIPAC).
As an aside to the book, I am always bemused by the term anti-Semitic to mean anti-Jew, as the word Semite embraces all the ancient Middle East races, including Arabs. An Arab cannot, therefore, cannot be anti-Semitic. On a similar vein, according to Shlomo Sand in his book "The Invention of the Jewish People", the DNA of Eastern European Jews is Turk not Semite. Draw your own conclusions.
The book is a worthwhile read, and I would also reccomend "The Israel Lobby" by Mearsheimer and Walt.
