Was aviation pioneer and popular American hero Charles A. Lindbergh a Nazi sympathizer and anti-Semite? Or was he the target of a vicious personal vendetta by President Roosevelt? In Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt, author James Duffy tackles these questions head-on, by examining the conflicting personalities, aspirations, and actions of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Charles A. Lindbergh. Painting a politically incorrect portrait of both men, Duffy shows how the hostility between these two American giants divided the nation on both domestic and international affairs. From canceling U.S. air mail contracts to intervening in World War II, Lindberg and Roosevelt’s clash of ideas and opinions shaped the nation’s policies here and abroad. Insightful, and engaging, Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt reveals the untold story about two of history’s most controversial men, and how the White House waged a smear campaign against Lindbergh that blighted his reputation forever.

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.
