War Is a Racket : The Antiwar Classic by America's Most Decorated Soldier
by Smedley D. Butler and Adam Parfrey




Overview -
Originally printed in 1935, War Is a Racket is General Smedley Butler's frank speech describing his role as a soldier as nothing more than serving as a puppet for big-business interests. In addition to photos from the notorious 1932 anti-war book The Horror of Itby Frederick A. Barber, this book includes two never-before-published anti-interventionist essays by General Butler.
The introduction discusses why General Butler went against the corporate war machine and how he exposed a fascist coup d'etat plot against President Franklin Roosevelt. Widely appreciated and referenced by left- and right-wingers alike, this is an extraordinary argument against war - more relevant now than ever.
