Incredible account - hits the nail on the head
Reagan's War is an absolutely incredible account of how Reagan had the determination to do what is right in the face of bitter criticism. From his nearly-unilateral decision to impose sanctions against Communist Poland after it imposed martial law (and how his decision and action is credited with saving the Polish Solidarity movement which eventually caused the downfall of Communism in Eastern Europe, and eventually the Soviet Union itself), to his decision to invade Grenada and the subsequent decision of dictators backing down from their threats to the west.<BR><BR> Reagan's War captures the heart of Ronald Reagan, and how his heart felt when he saw the effects of communism. One of the best examples is given in the book when the leader of Communist Poland thought that American movies were propaganda because they showed factory workers driving to work in their own automobiles, because 'you want us poor Poles to believe that factory workers really drive to work in their own cars in the United States?'. Ronald Reagan was disgusted by Communism, and this book very accurately describes how he systematically destroyed the idea of Communism.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
