Review of Freedom Betrayed: Herbert Hoover's Secret History of the Second World War and Its Aftermath

Freedom Betrayed: Herbert Hoover's Secret History of the Second World War and It
Freedom Betrayed: Herbert Hoover's Secret History of the Second World War and Its Aftermath, edited with an introduction by George H. Nash.

In the American Spectator, Tom Bethell reviews the newly published Freedom Betrayed: Herbert Hoover's Secret History of the Second World War and Its Aftermath. “Written by President Herbert Hoover in his retirement, he worked on it for 20 years and regarded it as his magnum opus,” states Bethell. “Hoover offers his frank evaluation of President Roosevelt's foreign policies before Pearl Harbor and during the war, as well as an examination of the war's consequences, including the expansion of the Soviet empire at war's end and the eruption of the Cold War against the Communists.” The introduction to the book was written by George H. Nash.

“Herbert Hoover's book succeeds in bringing that history back to life and in forcing us to think about it in ways that will surely be unfamiliar to many,” Bethell concludes.
