OK first off… who are these guys? Look at their “Works by” lists. When where and why did they write and where do you think their sympathies might lie? We know Kissinger worked for Nixon so it is no suprise that Kissinger has already mentioned “Tricky Dick” several times even thouigh we’re barely into 1940. Who do you think A&B will center on?
A&B I believe paint a rather different picture of FDR. In March of 1939, after Hitler’s conquest of CZ, they point out he failed to support a Senate resolution that would allow firm backing of the “democracies”. HK cites the Quarantine speech of 1937, two full years earlier, arguing FDR knew of the threat of the totalitarian states and was trying to draw attention and sympathy to that threat.
To what extent do you agree with either one of them?
