Overview


Friendly Fire investigates the intrigue and treachery between—and within—the nations that were ostensibly allies during the Second World War. It asserts that the Allied war effort was more concerned with the balance of power in the postwar world than with the defeat of Germany and Japan. These machinations allegedly prolonged the duration of the war by as much as two years. Based on extensive research, this study contains information obtained from key archives as well as the testimonies of those individuals actively involved in the events. The result is a provocative re-evaluation of Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin, and the real agenda behind the formation of the postwar world—and the consequences for us all.
