by Armstrong (Author) (1940)Review by user Judge George Washington Armstrong wrote this wonderfully interesting and terribly important book in the midst of World War II. In 1940, the crucial issue was whether or not the Roosevelt administration would defy American political precedent by seeking a third term and simultaneously ignore the will of the American people by entering into the European war. Wilkie was the chosen stooge of the complacent Republican party who dutifully lost to FDR, thereby enabling Roosevelt to continue his reign and to maneuver Japan into the Pearl Harbor attack. The rest, as they say, is history. Within the corpus of this text, Armstrong puts forth a very lucid and lawyerly argument that the force that impelled America on this route of disaster was the international banking empire of the Rothschild Money Trust. The posture taken by Judge Armstrong was well stated in the context in which he wrote and has been absolutely verified by subsequent events. A necessary caution to the interested reader is that Judge Armstrong, writing with a patriot's passion, sometimes ventures into the realm of bigotry. That notwithstanding, the work is wonderfully readable and enlightening. It is a tragedy that such excellent and important work is so little known.
