4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely Presented abd Focused, 13 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Untold History of the United States (Paperback)
This is a good book to read and is written better than so many American books. It gives a good overview of the backstory to many historical events and probably should be read alongside some of Anthony C Sutton's monographs for added detail.

It is a story of an American Republic corrupted by the world in reality corrupted by its obsessive-compulsion to direct the world. The destruction of the British Empire and the access US corporations gained to raw materials from that empire spawned a global race for oil and minerals which in recent years has reached into the backyard of the Soviet Union and a new Great Game.

The book is especially weak on European inputs. The role of Harold Macmillan, British PM in liaising between Kennedy and Khrushchev is ignored. Likewise the fact that the US cut off the British from nuclear technology with the McMahon Act and forced the 1945 Labour Government to build its own atomic bomb and the Conservatives to have Penney build a hydrogen bomb.

The key aspects of The Mackinder Plan are not discussed which is the reason the US needs control of Europe through Occupation or Missile Defence

Otherwise good
