    Found this book at a garage sale the other day. I was going through some old boxes and came across this book. I could not believe what I saw when I opened it. An autograph copy. Even better there was a letter with Admiral Kimmel's letter head, it was also signed. Though it is a third edition it was a great find.

      Fantastic book - supports what many have said for 70 years: that FDR saw the need for the US to enter the war before the Nazis and Japanese conquered the rest of the world, but had the American isolationist mood to deal with. He goaded the Japanese to attack, and concealed information that the Japanese planned to attack, even after it was known to him that Pearl Harbor was the target. This way, the isolationist mood would be evaporated and the US could enter the war in time to stop the Nazi-Japan Axis from taking over.
      For all the deceit and manipulation of the American people, Roosevelt was likely right, just a Lincoln was right in doing anything, including wholesale violation of the US Constitution, to keep the US from being dismembered (CSA) and overwhelmed by foreign powers.
      If he had not done what he did, isolationism would have continued until it was too late to hope for anything better than a negotiated peace with the Axis.
