Harry Elmer Barnes (ed.):

Perpetual War
for Perpetual Peace

A Critical Examination of the Foreign Policy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and its Aftermath

This book is one of those rare historical classics that serve as guides not merely to the past, but to the future. Forty years after it was first published (in 1953), it remains the most authoritative, and the most comprehensive, revisionist account of the real causes and the actual results of America's entry into the Second World War. The work of eight outstanding American historians and researchers, under the editorial leadership of the brilliant historical polymath and controversialist Harry Elmer Barnes, this book is more than the "critical examination of the foreign policy of Franklin Delano Roosevelt" promised in its subtitle: it is a scholarly exposé, measured and relentless, of the calculated deceit by which FDR overturned America's traditional neutrality policy, provoked Pearl Harbor (while forcing his soldiers and sailors to shoulder the blame), and waged a brutal, pointless war, which culminated in mass slaughter at Dresden and Hiroshima and betrayal of America and the West at Yalta and Potsdam.

This work establishes convincingly that America's participation in the Second World War was neither necessary, nor desirable. But already in 1953, Barnes predicted that America would continue to be embroiled in military adventures and alarms around the globe as a result of U.S. imperialism.

Today, almost half a century after VE-Day and VJ-Day, the long road back to the foreign policy by which America flourished strong and free begins by establishing the facts and righting the record on our intervention into the Second World War. For that, there is no better tool than this book.
