5.0 out of 5 stars Do you have no shame and sense of decency?, 7 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I finished Diane West's book yesterday. It was a difficult read as she packed so much information on each page that I had to stop and consider what I read from time to time. I cannot fault her conclusions. The new facts that the KGB records, opened by Boris Yeltsin in the 1990s, brought to the table in the history of the war period have not been incorporated into the official narrative of WWII. Need we add that early historians of WWII did not know about the role that the code breakers of Bletchley played in the defeat of the Nazis. The brilliant Allied generals were made to look even better because they were reading the Nazis confidential correspondences, that we only learned in the last decade or so.

Diane backs up each and every fact and allegation with references. It is a chilling thought to think that the whole WWII strategic course was being orchestrated from the Kremlin, and that the whole White House was infiltrated with Communist supporters and sympathizers. It is only natural that the established historians will get very upset with this information as it destroys their world view: the Good American saving the rest of the world and all that.

Difficult to come to terms with the information that the comrades of the USSR did indeed keep more than 25000 American GIs, whom were 'liberated'by the advancing Red Army troops, in the Russian gulags until as late as 1991, when Yeltsin shocked the world when he told one-term Bush during their first meeting and public interview that the USA can have the American POWs back! If this is true, the lies and spin the author mentions in her book needs further investigation and clarification.

5.0 out of 5 stars Communism didn't die, it just moved house, 10 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Diana West's book split the American Right and you can see why. It is part detective novel, part secret history and part impassioned polemic. When the Soviet influence on and infiltration of America is put in the modern context of Islamophilia and Obama's blatant Socialist engineering, the book's central thesis blows apart the triumphalism of the West, replacing the Stars and Stripes of Uncle Sam with the hammer and sickle of Uncle Joe Stalin. You should read this book if you have any interest in the fate of the West.
