More About FDR Goes to War by Burton W. Folsom; Anita Folsom
 
 
 
Overview
From the acclaimed author of New Deal or Raw Deal?, an "eye-opening" (National Review) expose of FDR's destructive wartime policies.
WAS FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT REALLY A GREAT WARTIME LEADER, AS HISTORIANS ALMOST UNANIMOUSLY ASSERT?
The acclaimed author of New Deal or Raw Deal?, called "eye-opening" by the National Review, exposes the negative impact of FDR's destructive wartime legacy on America's economic and foreign policies today.
History books tell us the World War II economy was a boon, ending the Great Depression thanks to massive government spending. But the skyrocketing national debt, food rations, crippling taxes, and labor strikes of the time tell a story that is hardly the stuff of recovery. Instead, Roosevelt's poor judgment and confused management left Congress with a devastating fiscal mess after the final bomb was dropped and ushered in a new era of imperialism for the executive branch. In this provocative book, Burton W. Folsom and Anita Folsom make a stunning case that will force America to take a second look at one of its most complicated presidents.
