"This absorbing history of America on the eve of World War II offers a bold reassessment of the forces that led to American engagement. Robert Herzstein presents dramatic and compelling evidence that Franklin D. Roosevelt was an early, decisive, and masterful opponent of Hitler, who foresaw the true extent of the Nazi threat, both at home and abroad, and waged a brilliant battle against German propaganda. Using documents culled from Nazi archives and from information seized by the U.S. Department of Justice, Herzstein shows that extensive pro-Nazi activities in pre-war America were supported by the Nazi government. He paints a vivid portrait of Roosevelt working relentlessly to immobilize domestic fascists and anti-Semites and to alert a sleeping nation to the Nazi peril. The compelling narrative is supplemented with more than 50 illustrations - including shocking German propaganda posters published in the United States."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
