  1. I’d also highly recommend online documentaries by Dennis Wise: Communism by the Back Door, The Secret Masonic Victory of WW2, and The Greatest Story Never Told.

    1. Thanks Ron … I’m actually about half way through with Communism by the back door.

      And I have viewed “The Greatest Story Never Told.”

      I’ll look into the Masonic one.

  2. An excellent list! If I may make a few additions:

    1. John Toland’s “Infamy: Pearl Harbor and Its Aftermath”. Probably the best known revisionist work on Peal Harbor.

    2. “Day of Deceit: The Truth About FDR and Pearl Harbor” by Robert Stinnett. Newly released documents which John Toland didn’t have access to. BTW, David Irving’s “Churchill’s War” has lots of good information about the UK’s role in fostering of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

    3. “Dark Sun: The Making of the Hydrogen Bomb” by Richard Rhodes. FDR used WWII to build the Soviet Union into a world power, in part through Lend-Lease and the delivery of atomic bomb secrets. Parts of this book are concerned with the overwhelmingly Jewish transfer of atomic bomb secrets to the Soviets. Rhodes’ five-page review of “Major Jordan’s Diaries” is excellent and negates the need to read Jordan’s book (which is also excellent).

    4. “Deathride: Hitler vs. Stalin, the Eastern Front, 1941-45” by John Mosier. Germany would have beaten the Soviet Union, even with Lend-Lease, if the Allies had not invaded North Africa, Italy, and France.

    5. “Cross of Iron: The Rise and Fall of the German War Machine, 1918‑1945” by John Mosier. Without Lend-Lease, the Soviet Union would have succumbed no later than the first half of 1944.

    6. “Hitler’s War” by David Irving. Lots of good insight from the German perspective.
