An appallingly tendentious book with the thesis that the "two Anglo-Saxon world powers, England and America, were driving toward war and [hence] bear principal responsibility" for the outbreak of World War II. According to this view, deceptively bolstered by revisionist literature and a smattering of other sources, Germany carried the least responsibility. A shoddy and polemical work, cloaked in the trappings of scholarship.
