“A clique of U.S. industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy. I have had plenty of opportunity in my post in Berlin to witness how close some of our American ruling families are to the Nazi regime. They extended aid to help Fascism occupy the seat of power, and they are helping to keep it there.”

— William E. Dodd
U.S. Ambassador to Germany

Saving Private Power

bookcover is a drawing of a glowering Adolf Hitler dressed as Uncle Sam, looking wild-eyed and pointing menacingly at the viewer. Saving Private Power:
The Hidden History of “The Good War”
by Michael Zezima
Soft Skull Press; ISBN 1-887128-45-x

From leftbooks.com:

Saving Private Power is the most provocative history of the “Good War” ever published. It questions the ultra-patriotic assumptions we have been taught since birth.

The U.S. did not enter WWII to end the Holocaust, to make the world a safer place, or to stop fascism. The opposite is true. The U.S. business class traded with Hitler and Mussolini up to and even during the war. Henry Ford and Charles Lindbergh’s public Hitlerphilia were symbolic of the admiration of big business for Hitler’s anticommunism.

Using techniques gleaned from modern advertising, the U.S. Office of War Information injected anti-Japanese bloodlust and hysteria into the population. When the U.S. killed 672,000 Japanese through indiscriminate bombing, even Secretary of War Henry Stimson wondered why “there has never been a protest over...such extraordinarily heavy loss of life. There is something wrong with a country where no one questions that.”

Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan and Tom Brokaw’s The Greatest Generation are cashing in on the revived interest in World War II. But time’s up for the traffickers of cheap nostalgia. The media elite have sold us the myth about America’s noble role in the “Good War” for too long and the facade is beginning to crack.
