Roosevelt: from Munich to Pearl Harbor

By Basil Rauch
Creative Age Press, 1950
527 pp. $4.50

A refutation of the thesis advanced by the late Charles A. Beard and others that President Roosevelt lured the United States into the Second World War. Charges that Roosevelt "plotted" war are overwhelmed by a mass of well-ordered evidence; the author's view that the President was attempting to follow a neutral course is in line with the concept of the "new neutrality" as expounded by Justice Jackson.
