Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt: The Rivalry That Divided America

Overview

Praise for LINDBERGH vs. ROOSEVELT

“In the name–calling that passes for how American history is taught these days, an authentic American hero, Charles Lindbergh, is too often dismissed as a ‘Nazi sympathizer’ because of his opposition to President Roosevelt’s war policy. Lindbergh’s actual service as an anti–Nazi spy is overlooked, as are his many contributions to the war effort, including his volunteer combat service in the Pacific. But as historian James Duffy points out in ...

Overview

Praise for LINDBERGH vs. ROOSEVELT

“In the name–calling that passes for how American history is taught these days, an authentic American hero, Charles Lindbergh, is too often dismissed as a ‘Nazi sympathizer’ because of his opposition to President Roosevelt’s war policy. Lindbergh’s actual service as an anti–Nazi spy is overlooked, as are his many contributions to the war effort, including his volunteer combat service in the Pacific. But as historian James Duffy points out in Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt, there’s a lot more to the story than that; Lindbergh was the victim of a long–standing smear campaign by a president desperate to silence one of his most prominent critics. In this excellent book, Duffy successfully restores the honor that properly belongs to Lindbergh and draws a more skeptical, and accurate, portrayal of Roosevelt. If you love reading twentieth century American history, you’ll love this book.” —Thomas E. Woods Jr., author of The Politically Incorrect Guideto American History

“In Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt James Duffy ably describes the contrasting worldviews of Charles Lindbergh and Franklin Roosevelt. Duffy carefully and persuasively shows how FDR pushed the U.S. toward war and how Lindbergh warned against the entangling alliances that George Washington wanted Americans to avoid. Duffy shows how FDR prevailed in the war debate and how he smeared and undermined Lindbergh in the process. Duffy’s book is an excellent contribution to the research on the disappointing character of FDR as president.” —Burton Folsom Jr., author of New Deal or Raw Deal?

    In a world that lionizes FDR, I found this take on him as a political beast refreshing. This won't be the only book I'll read on Lindbergh's legacy, but it's clear that Lucky Lindy was the victim of the worst kind of yellow journalism & political backstabbing. The author, James Duffy, is sympathetic to Lindbergh, but his research appears researched & sound. And isn't it about time someone is?

    I'm thankful that I picked this up off the Barnes and Noble bargain table.  When the author's preface includes a defense of Sarah Palin, 
    Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, you know it's not a serious examination of the relationship between FDR and Charles Lindbergh.
    Don't waste your time!

    This book is ridiculous. I can only hope that Barnes & Noble did not realize their mistake when they placed it in the History section instead of the Humor section. The author could not have been serious about any of this. It is pure nonsense.
