Good introduction to the controversy caused by Taylor with the publication of his Origins... in 1961. An anthology of the major reviews, good and bad, as well as Taylor's replies.
Lewis, Wyndham, Left Wings Over Europe, Jonathan Cape, 1936.
Sub-titled "How to Make a War about Nothing," this bitingly irreverent polemic against the anti-fascist "Popular Front" mentality and its stodgy Establishment supporters caused a stir in intellectual circles with its enthusiastic defense of Hitler and National Socialist Germany. Lewis, one of the country's greatest prose stylists, was virtually forced to leave England at the outbreak of war as a result of the "heretical" views expressed in this and other works.
Lilienthal, Alfred, The Other Side of the Coin, Devin-Adair, 1965.
Frank discussion of the Near East, Israel, and American Zionism by a well-informed Jewish critic of Zionism, with a broad plan for the solution of the Arab-Jewish problem.

This 872 page block-buster is the most comprehensive book ever on the extraordinary control of the Zionist lobby over American affairs. The authora Jew himselfeven examines the way the Zionists use the "Holocaust" to intimidate all who oppose them. Excellent.
Littlejohn, David, The Patriotic Traitors, Doubleday, 1972.
This book obliterates the myth of a near-universal resistance to and hatred of Hitler and his aims among the peoples of occupied Europe. Also it debunks the notion that most of those who "collaborated" were part of a tiny minority of cynics out only for personal gain. Country-by-country studies of those European patriots who, either through right-wing "nationalist" or "European Unity" sentiment, joined with Germany in the struggle against Bolshevism. Littlejohn concludes that if Hitler had treated his many friends as well as he had treated his enemies badly, he might have won the war.
Lohbeck, Don, Patrick J. Hurley, Regnery, 1957.
Interesting biography of a colorful public character. Contains much valuable information critical of the Roosevelt-Truman-Acheson policy in the Far East.
Lord, Walter, The Day of In famy, Holt, 1957.
Detailed and absorbing account of the attack on Pearl Harbor, from the departure of the Japanese task force from the Kurile Islands to the destructive bombing of the American fleet. While the author does not draw the logical conclusions from his data, their implications constitute a tremendous indictment of President Roosevelt and the army and navy officials in Washington, whose deliberate refusal to warn Short and Kimmel at Pearl Harbor was responsible for any "ineptitude" in the latter place on " the Day of Infamy. "
Lukacs, John, The Last European War 1939-1941, Anchor Press/Doubleday, 1976.
The title of this massive and provocative
Revisionist tome refers not to the latest, but to the last, "European
War." Far more important than that Prof. Lukacs brings a
lot of buried and ignored truths to light and blasts many historical
lies and stupidities, is the brilliant, even moving, tone in and
purpose for which he writes. An intense feeling of "the search"
for the real meaning of the European fratracide in its historical,
political, philosophical, and cultural perspective pervades this
work, which is something of an elaboration on themes presented
in Lukacs' earlier Passing of the Modern Age. Highly recommended,
not just for understanding the true meaning of the second world
war, but for understanding the 20th century itself
Lutz, Hermann, Franco-German Unity, Regnery, 1957.

Martin, James J., Revisionist Viewpoints, Ralph Myles, 1971.
A libertarian professorwho studied under Barnesdebunks many of the WWII notions of the "court historians" in this collection of essays. He examines war crimes trials, saturation bombing, wartime propaganda techniques, and Fascist economics. Excellent.
Martin, James J., The Saga of Hog Island; And Other Essays in Inconvenient History, Ralph Myles, 1977.
An iconoclastic collection of Revisionist studies covering various topics, including the Framing of Tokyo Rose, Pearl Harbor, the Morgenthau Plan. Witty and irreverent. A must for any Revisionist library.
Maser, Werner, Nuremberg: A Nation on Trial, Scribner's, 1979.
This was a bestseller in its German, 1977 edition, which obviously shows that at long last the German citizenry are beginning to wake up and question the Allied brainwashing programs. This book is one of the best researched, and most critical, texts on the kangaroo court. Ten years of researchmuch of it with unpublished materialhave paid off. Excellent.
Mayer, Milton, They Thought They Were Free: the Germans, 1933-1945. University of Chicago Press, 1955.
Courageous and convincing book which demonstrates that Germans during the National Socialist era were not all demented and enthusiastic slaves of a brutal totalitarianism.

Able and decisively Revisionist French study of the alliance which was the primary factor in producing the first world war.
Miksche, F. O., Unconditional Surrender, Faber and Faber, (London), 1952.
Proves with abundant historical evidence that the "Unconditional Surrender" slogan adopted at Casablanca in January, 1943, was the most calamitous decision in recent history, not only in the way of prolonging the second world war for more than a year but also in making a third world war much more likely.

Extremely popular work, and a very effective attack on the Wilsonian diplomacy which led us into the war. The most widely read of all Revisionist books dealing with the first world war.
Minear, Richard, Victors' Justice: The Tokyo War Crimes Trial, Princeton University Press, 1971.
A critical look at the Far East version of Nurnbergthe intemational trial of 28 top Japanese leaders (including Tojo Hidecki) for war crimes and crimes against peace. The 55-count indictment rested primarily on the theory that since 1928 this "criminal, militaristic clique" had dominated Japan and carried out a conspiracy to "secure the domination and exploitation by the aggressive states of the rest of the world..." Minear views this theory as simple-minded and ridiculous in the extreme, a product of postwar victors' mentality, and he succeeds in his frankly stated task of demolishing the credibility of the trial and its verdict. Besides considering the problems of international law and legal process, Minear reviews the history of the period under consideration and arrives at Revisionist conclusions. In particular he rejects the notion that the tripartite Axis Alliance was some kind of fantastic, well-laid and unified scheme to conquer the world.

Brilliant indictment of the failure of the victors and the League to revise the treaties after the war, restore justice, and assure peace. Debunks the "war to end war" myth.

Briefer work than Lutz and a sharper
indictment of Grey
Montgelas, Count Maximilian, The Case for the Central Powers, Knopf, 1925.

The latest and most complete German work on the outbreak of the first world war, Alfred von Wegerer, Der Ausbruch des Weltkrieges, 1914, Hamburg, 1939, has not been translated into English. It is the definitive book on the subject in any language.
Morgan, Sir Frederick, Peace and War, Hodder and Stoughton, 1961.
Interesting reminiscences of a British general on World War II and Allied occupation, with an inaluable exposure of the favoritism and scandals in the administration of U.N.R.R.A.
Morgenstern, George, Pearl Harbor, Devin-Adair, 1947.
The flrst substantial revisionist book on the entry of the United States into the second world war. Deals with both the diplomatic background and the final efforts to maneuver the Japanese into making the attack.

Brief but informing account of the major wartime and postwar allied conferences. Actually reveals how peace was lost.
Newman, Simon, March 1939: The British Guarantee to Poland, Oxford University Press, 1976.
An excellent addition to the Revisionist literature of "appeasement," this is the definitive study of the processes leading up to the fateful guarantee that only "guaranteed" another European war. The author concludes that a genuine appeasement was never really triedthe British were always committed to maintaining the status quo and the traditional policy of not allowing any one Power to attain a predominant position on the continent. He demonstrates that the British leaders knew their guarantee would almost certainly lead to war, but preferred this course to a possible independent settlement between Germany and Poland over the Danzig and corridor questions. In particular Newman confirms the work of David Hoggan (whose massive and definitive study of the origins of the war, Der Erzwungene Krieg, has not yet been published in English) in pinpointing the role of Lord Halifax as war-instigator, and in recognizing that Hitler's ideal goal was an alliance with Britain. Newman bravely commits academic heresy by declaring that the Revisionist arguments of Hoggan, Peter Nicoll (Britain's Blunder), and Kurt Glasser (Der Zweite Weltkrieg und die Kriegsschuldfrage: die Hoggan Kontroverse) deserve more consideration than they have been given.
Nicoll, Peter H., Britain's Blunder, first published 1946, Communications Archives reprint, 1973; available from IHR.
A brilliant examination by a courageous Scottish clergyman of the causes, conduct, and consequences of the second world war. Nicoll begins by bluntly stating that the British declaration of war on Germany of 3 September 1939 was the worst blunder in her historya blunder compounded by her later failure to consider Hitler's peace offers, and whose apotheosis was reached in the simultaneous Red over-running of half of Europe and disintegration of the British Empire.

The published version, condensed from its original 1,900-page length, of Justice Pal's brilliant dissenting opinion on the verdict of the Tokyo war crimes tribunal of which he was a member. He rips to shreds the list of charges against the accused, and in his moral outrage against the conduct and the very fact of the trial even states that the whole farcical trial and-hanging of the Japanese was itself "a war crime of peculiar gravity."

Details the persecutions (sometimes involving lynchings and mob violence) of socialists, pacifists, aliens, Americans of German descent, the I.W.W., and all those who were not deemed 110% patriotic. Also explores the role of America's first propaganda minister, George Creel, and his "Committee on Public Information," which took the lead in censoring unwanted opinions.

Powell, Col. E. Alexander, Thunder Over Europe, Macmillan, 1931.
The Long Roll on the Rhine, Macmillan, 1934.
Two lucid accounts of the troubled European scene, the first about Central Europe, the second largely about Germany, by an experienced English observer, world traveler and author of some 30 books. Col. Powell's emphasis is upon the destructiveness of the Versailles system in preventing any real peace to follow the 1918 armistice, while describing the revolutionary brewing in the region between the Rhine and the Vistula. These are two remarkably balanced narratives, and like his fellow English correspondent, Sisley Huddleston, Col. Powell was aware that another war was clearly in sight unless some extended reforms took place to rectify the gravely unfair settlements of World War I
Pribram, A. F., Austria-Hungary and Great Britain, 1908-1914, Oxford University Press, 1951.
A defense of Austrian policy before the first world war which stresses the harmony in Anglo-Austrian relations once the Bosnian crisis had passed. Helps to explain why Berchtold did not expect England to intervene in 1914.
Puleston, W. D., The Influence of Force in Foreign Relations, Van Nostrand, 1955.
Able exposition by an American naval authority of the thesis that it is disastrous to limit military action by political commitments, to pretend peaceful intentions while inadequately and dishonestly preparing for war, and to wage war competently without reckoning with the probable political results of the warfare, even if victorious in a military sense. A very realistic book which questions the statecraft and military strategy of both Roosevelt and Churchill.
Radosh, Ronald, Prophets on the Right, Simon and Schuster, 1975.
A "New Left" Revisionist historian presents favorable profiles of five leading Revisionist and anti-interventionist thinkers usually associated with the Right-wing: Charles A. Beard, Oswald Garrison Villard, Robert A. Taft, John T. Flynn, and Lawrence Dennis. The author recognizes that in many ways the old distinctions between "Left" and "Right" in foreign policythinking were and are false and misleading ones fostered by the interventionist, global-crusading liberals and conservatives alike who have no use for a pro-American, neutralist foreign policy.
Ramsay, Archibald H. M., The Nameless War, Britons, 1946, reprinted 1977.
British naval Captain and M.P., who was unjustly imprisoned during the second world war (along with Oswald Mosley and many others who opposed the senseless European fratricide), reviews the history in Britain and in Europe of Germanophobic war-mongeringespecially among a certain "influential segment" of the population. Ramsaywho knew Neville Chamberlain well, but couldn't dissuade him from the war-posture the "hawks" had forced him intojustifies Hitler's goal of a Revision of Versailles, and laments that Britain and the West did not mind their own business and allow Germany to fulfill her historic role of defending European Culture against the East.

Contains Le Mensonge d'Ulysse (The Lie of Ulysses) 5th edition which in turn contains La Passage de la Ligne (The Crossing of the Line) and Le Drame des Juifs Européens (The Drama of the European Jews). Despite a rather eccentric writing style, Rassinier's work remains essential to any study of Holocaust Revisionism on account of his first-hand experiences at Buchenwald.
Read, J. M., Atrocity Propaganda, 1914-1919, Yale University Press, 1941.
Probably the best exposé of WWI "Black propaganda." Nobody has owned up yet to similar "dirty tricks" during WWII.
Reed, Douglas, The Controversy of Zion, Dolphin Press, 1978.
Although Reed here spends a good deal of time on the roots and development of political Zionism, he feels it necessary to a real undestanding of the causes of World War II and other armed conflicts. His analysis of the "behind the scenes" manipulations of key interventionists is incisive, proving this ex-London Times correspondent to be a courageous, truth-seeking and amazing fact-gathering observer of world events. Some of the more Revisionist chapters deal vwith Churchill, Balfour, Pearl Harbor the Israel enigma and the machinations of the "kept press."
Reel, A. F., The Case of General Yamashita, University of Chicago Press, 1949.
Courageous and informing book by an able American lawyer dealing with the trial and execution of the Japanese military commander, under the authority of General MacArthur.
Regnery, Henry, Memoirs of a Dissident Publisher, Harcourt Brace, 1979.
The autobiography of the man responsible for publishing some of the seminal books of World War II Revisionism. For years the Regnery Co. shared with the Devin-Adair Co. the lonely distinction of being courageous enough to defy the totalitarian liberals and print Revisionist books. In these memoirs Regnery describes some of the trials, tribulations, and satisfactions of his company's attempt to bring some of the truth about recent history to Americans, in spite of the blackout-efforts of the "free press. "
Reiners, Ludwig, The Lights Went Out in Europe, Pantheon Books,1956.
Very readable Revisionist book on the background and course of the fist world war. Especially good for its treatment of the personalities involved.
Renouvin, Pierre, The Immediate Origins of the War, Yale University Press, 1928.
Most scholarly French work on the subject. His Revisionism is restrained but he does refute the Versailles condemnation of Germany and her Allies as solely responsible for the first world war.
Richardson, Dorsey, Will They Pay ? Lippincott, 1933.
The best book on the manner in which the Allies reneged on their war debts to the United States.
Ritter, Gerhard, The German Problem, Ohio State University Press, 1965.
A restrained, objective analysis of the "problem," which has been the grounds for so much tragedy in this century, of Germany's internal and extemal position vis-a-vis the rest of Europe Ritter effectively counters the Germanophobia of those wartime and postwar writers who would like to trace a straight line from Satan to Arminius to Luther to Hitler in order to prove an historic German chauvinism and barbarism. But in so doing he also frankly explores the very real isolation and "contrast between (Germany ) and western Europe in the manner of political thinking and political institutions" that has existed since the Reformation. In particular he describes the newly-unified Germany's efforts to play catchup ball with the other powes during the European period of expansion and imperialism, the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He examinesas few of the Germanophobes have been willing to dothe German question in its European context, and finds in 20th century German totalitarianism and expansionism the fruition not of characteristically German, but of wide and unsettling European political and social trends. These factors, combined with Germany's isolation in other mattes, and especially her geographic position so susceptible to encirclement, created earth-shaking events and have left us a complex historical problem which no mere placing of "guilt" on the German nation alone can hope to answer.
Ritter, Gerhard, The Sword and the Sceptre, Vol. II: "The European Powers and the Wilhelminian Empire 1890-1914," and Vol. III: "The Tragedy of StatesmanshipBethmann Hollweg as War Chancellor 1914-1917." Translated by Heinz Norden, University of Miami Press, 1970 and 1972.
In these two middle volumes of his monumental four-volume, 1800-page study of the problem of militarism in German history, Professor Ritterdean of postwar German historians demolishes the controversial Fritz Fischer thesis of German responsibility for and war-aims in the first world war. Although Ritter's study was conceived before Fischer published his neo-Germanophobic Griff nach der Weltmacht (1961, translated as Germany's Aims in the First World War, Norton, 1967), these two volumes were written afterword, and provide the most massive and scholarly refutation of Fischer that has been made (and there have been many). Ritterhimself no uncritical viewer of Wilhelmine Germanypoints out the numerous and serious factual, methodological, and interpretive errors in Fischer's book and notes that Fischer almost entirely ignores the role of the other European powers in the 1914 crisis and their war preparation and aimsan indispensable consideration if one is to make pronouncements on the question of "war responsibility," as Fischer does. Ritter's entire work stands as a contemporary classicnot only as an overwhelming reply to a polemical work of pseudo-history, but in its own right as the definitive analysis of German militarism and statecraft in the Second Reich.

Able work by an Australian professor which, along with Henri Lichtenberger's The Third Reich, Greystone Press, 1947 constitute the earliest objective works on the Nazi regime.

Rogerson, Sidney, Propaganda in the Next War, Geoffrey Bles, (London), 1938.
After a review of the British propaganda which involved the United States in the first world war, Rogerson, a British intelligence officer, argued that these same tactics would not work a second time. He then proceeded to detail the manner in which the United States could be brought into a war against Germany through the backdoor by successfully promoting a Japanese-American conflict. A cynical but astute and almost uncannily prophetic book. Could have been written a decade later as a summary of what actually happened.

Roth, Heinz, Why Are We Being Lied To ?, Refo-Druck Verlag, 1975.
A German publisher looks at the questions of war-guilt and the alleged "genocide" of the Jews, in an effort to get at the truth behind media lies. Instead of original research, the reliance is mainly on other European Revisionists' findingsmost of which have not been translated into English, thus making this booklet especially valuable as an introduction to their research for American readers.
Rothfels, Hans, German Opposition to Hitler, Regnery, 1948.
Brief but incisive and authoritative demonstration that the Germans were not united to a man behind Hitler. Stresses the folly of the British and French in not cooperating with the opposition element in Germany to avert the second world war.

Russett, Bruce M., No Clear and Present Danger: A Skeptical View of the U.S. Entry into World War II, Harper Torchbooks, 1972.
Yale political scientist takes a second look at his own long-standing "orthodox" interpretation of the second world war, and concludes that American involvement was neither necessary nor justifiable, and in fact set a dangerous precedent for the further U.S. global "crusades" with which we are all familiar.
Salomon, Ernst von, Fragebogen, Doubleday and Co., 1955.
Somewhat cynical but highly illuminating and informing memoirs of a prominent German intellectual from the end of the first world war until the revival of German prosperity under the Bonn Republic. Especially valuable for impressions of the Nazi regime before and during the second world war and of the American occupation. Critical of both the Nazis and the Americans. Favors a government of the elite, but holds that the Nazis did not qualify for this.
Sanborn, F. R., Design for War, Devin-Adair, 1951.
One of the best books on American entry into the second world war. Is especially to be commended for its demonstration that Roosevelt moved toward war primarily to retain tenure of office.
Sargent, Porter, Getting US into War, Sargent (Boston) 1941.
A vast mass of cogent and authoritative material on the interventionist tactics and activities which involved the United States in the second world war. Ill-organized and poorly arranged, but a gold mine of information for the patient student.
Scheider, Theodor (ed.), The Expulsion of the German Population from the Territories East of the Oder-Neisse Line, Federal Ministry for Expellees (Bonn), 1957.
The West German government's description of the expulsions.
Schilling, Baron, How the War Began, London, 1925.
Invaluable source for Russian developments in the days before the outbreak of war, which was precipitated by the Russian general mobilization.
Schofield, William G., Treason Trail, Rand McNally, 1964.
The most important part of this otherwise vapid account of the American WWII "radio traitors" trials is the photographs. Every one of the defendants was a physical wreck after their ordeal.
Schoonmaker, E. D., Our Genial Enemy. France, Long and Smith, 1932.
Amiable but devastating rebuttal of the "Lafayette We Are Here" attitude and the myth of unique French friendship for the United States.
Schoonmaker, Edwin D., Democracy And World Dominion, Richard Smith, 1939.
Blasts a hole in the sanctimonious attitudes of the "democracies." A book designed to keep America out of war. Where did it fail?
Schroeder, Paul W., The Axis Alliance and Japanese-American Relations 1941, Cornell University Press, 1958.
Although superficially hostile to Pearl Harbor Revisionism and the general "back door to war" theory of American intervention, this study does present a thoroughly Revisionist view of the events leading to war in the Pacific. The author believes that American policy toward Japan from July to December 1941 was a grave mistake, making inevitable a war that was in fact unnecessary and avoidable. He cites the unreasonable and unalterable American demandsespecially regarding Japan's presence in Chinaas examples of America's tendency to place its lofty and dogmatic version of what is "morally right" ahead of the actual good a policy will do for those on whose behalf "morality" is invoked, in this case the Chinese. In the end, American policy did not help the Chinese, and it provoked Japan into attacking Pearl Harboran attack resorted to "only when she had her back to the wall as a result of America's diplomatic and economic offensive. " Schroeder demolishes the myth that the Axis Alliance was a grand scheme to conquer the world for "fascism." In actuality, Japan was always uncomfortable with the pact, andlike her co-signerswas in it mainly for reasons of immediate national self-interest.
Schuman, F. L., Night Over Europe, Knopf, 1941.
Vigorous defense of Russia's role in the era of Nazi-Soviet understanding and the outbreak of war in 1939 and 1941.
Schuman, F. L., Europe on the Eve, Knopf, 1939.
Valuable for its emphasis on the pro-Nazi sympathies of leading English public figures. The book itself is intensely anti-Nazi and more mildly pro-Russian.
Schweitzer, Arthur, Big Business in the Third Reich, Indiana University Press, 1964.
Extended debunking of the theory that the Germany economy under National Socialism was harnessed to autocracy and armament production. It was actually a roughly Keynesian set-up.
Selzer, Michael, Deliverance Day; The Last Hours at Dachau, Lippincott, 1978.
Candid admissions of the murder of German guards by U.S. "liberators."
Shiroyama, Saburo, War Criminal, Kodansha, 1977.
The life and death of Hirota Koki, the only Japanese civilian to be hanged by the Americans for "war crimes."
Sibley, Mulford Q. and others, Conscription of Conscience, Cornel University Press, 1952.
A scholarly investigation of the problem of the war objector in the United States during World War Two, with the emphasis on those persons with religious and related reservations and convictions. A generally much neglected phase of the social history of the era
Skidelsky, Robert, Oswald Mosley, Holt, Rinehart & Winston, 1975.
A massive biography of the British political leader who, as a young man shaken by his experience in the Great War and determined to fight for a newer and better world, rose to heights as a promising Labour M.P., then turned to British Fascism as the solution to the country's socio-economic and political ills, and after the second war crusaded for a "United States of Europe." Although Skidelsky by no means offers an uncritical portrait, he revises considerably the standard "dark" interpretation of Mosley (characterized by otherwise restrained historians suddenly relapsing into the "omigod" syndrome whenever considering him), and indeed regards him as perhaps Britain's great "lost leader" of this century. Mosley's ideasincluding those of his Fascist periodare seen not to have been given the objective consideration they deserve.
Smith, Bradley F., Reaching Judgement at Nuremberg, Basic, 1977.
Puts forward mild criticism of the trials.
Smith, R. Harris, O.S.S., University of California Press, 1972.
Smith reveals the clandestine operations of this fore-runner of the CIA, both during WWII in Europe, and afterward in Indo-China. Shows how John Birch was killed aiding Mao Tse Tung, not fighting against.
Snell, John L., (ed.), The Outbreak of the Second World War: Design or Blunder ?, D.C. Heath, 1962.
A volume in the "Problems of European Civilization" series this anthology brings together orthodox, Revisionist, and Soviet interpretations of the origins of the 1939 war. Includes selections from A. J. P. Taylor, Charles C. Tansill, H. R. Trevor-Roper, Adolf Hitler, and the official Nurnberg Judgement. Valuable bibliographical essay at the end.
Snow, John Howland, The Case of Tyler Kent, Domestic and Foreign Affairs, 1946.
Informative and sympathetic treatment of the Tyler Kent affair. Kent, a code clerk in the U.S. embassy in London in 1939-40, spent five years in a British prison for making copies of the secret communications between Roosevelt and then - First Admiralty Lord Churchill (who was thus bypassing his own head of State) communications designed to figure out a way to get America into the war. Kent aimed at exposing to the U.S. Congress and people this "secret diplomacy," but his imprisonment and the iron clamp of British and American censorship kept him quiet.
The Sorrow and the Pity (A Film by Marcel Ophuls), Introduction by Stanley Hoffman, Outerbridge & Lazard (distributed by E. P. Dutton Co.), 1972.
A complete transcript, with photos and appendix material of the controversial French documentary film of 1969. The film sets out to explode the "Myth of the French Resistance." This "myth" is not that the Resistance was not a heroic and powerful forcethe film's bias is extremely pro-Resistancebut that it was surely the representative of "all France" and that the great masses of Frenchmen rallied to its banner and worked with it or believed in it. The film shows just how much of France did collaborate, even enthusiastically, with Vichy and the Germans, or at least accepted them complacently. Though it amounts essentially to an anti-collaborationist epic and an extended smear of the Vichy regime, this study is valuable for its presentation of the realities and extent of collaboration.
Spaight, J. M., Bombing Vindicated, Geoffrey Bles (London), 1944.
The Principal Secretary of the British Air Ministry in the second world war reveals that the British had decided to bomb civilians in the next world war as early as 1936, and put this policy into operation on 11 May 1940, despite Hitler's proposal that bombing be limited strictly to military objectives.
Sontag, R.J. European Diplomatic History, 1871-1932, Century, 1933.
A mildly Revisionist work, and the most readable general diplomatic history of the background of the first world war.
Stieve, Friedrich, Isvolsky and the World War, Knopf, 1926.
Shows how Isvolsky and the French war group, led by President Poincaré, brought on the first world war. Based on Russian documents released by the Bolsheviks.
Stenehjem, Michele F., An American First: John T. Flynn and the America First Committee, Arlington House, 1976.
A sympathetic study of Flynn's leading role, as chairman of the New York chapter of America First, in the battle against intervention. The focus here on the northeastern regional section of the Committee provides an important corrective to previous studies which tended to see America First as primarily a "midwest isolationist" phenomenon,.This book well supplements the Eggleston, Colby, and Martin accounts of how decent noninterventionists were hounded and smeared and blacked out by an Establishment promoting a war for "freedom of speech" and "democracy." At the end, Stenehjem suggests history's vindication of the America First position, and also notes the tragic precedent established of a congress and a people abdicating the warpower to a strong Executive.
Stoddard, T. L., Europe and Your Money, Macmillan, 1932.
How America's allies in Europe reneged on their loan repayments.
Stone, I. F., The Hidden History of the Korean War, Monthly Review Press, 1952.
The first important Leftwing Revisionist book since the 1930's. While the author's ideological bias must always be kept in mind, the book supplies abundant material embarrassing to President Truman and Secretary Acheson which they failed to disclose to either Congress or the American public.
Summers, Robert E., Wartime Censorship of Press and Radio, H. W. Wilson, 1942.
Very frank description for war-time readers of the philosophy and necessity of censorship. Early WWII examples from radio, movies, the press, and government show how censorship extended beyond purely military and strategic matters into the very realms of "correct" political thought. Makes for extremely interesting reading, considering the "free speech" for which we were supposedly fighting.
Swain, J. W., Beginning the Twentieth Century, Norton, 1933.
Wider coverage than diplomatic history, but the chapters on diplomacy are the best Revisionist summary of the underlying diplomatic causes of the first world war.
Szaz, Z. M., Germany's Eastern Frontier, Regnery, 1961.
Best presentation in manageable length of the facts about the expulsion of the Germans from their historic eastern homelands after World War II, the worst political atrocity of the Allies during which upwards of four million expellees lost their lives through starvation, disease, exposure, and massacre.
Tansill, C. C., America Goes to War, Little, Brown, 1939.
The unrivalled scholarly account of the entry of the United States into the first world war. Even superior to the work of Fay on the European situation.
Tansill, C. C., Back Door to War, Regnery, 1951.
A book of great scholarship and learning which devotes most of the sections dealing with the United States to demonstrating how Roosevelt turned to war with Japan after vainly seeking to intervene directly in Europe. One of the most important Revisionist books so far published on the great "war to end all wars "
Taylor, A. J. P., The Origins of the Second World War, Fawcett, 1978.
The only Revisionist account of the causes and onset of World War II in the English language. A brilliant and reliable work. Unfortunately, Taylor falls for the "Holocaust" myth without questioning.
Taylor, A. J. P., The Second World War: An Illustrated History, Putnam's, 1975.
This is one of the more scholarly and worthwhile volumes in the recent spate of "illustrated history" books. The introductory chapter is valuable for its discussion of the origins of the warTaylor demonstrates again that Hitler had no desire for a general European conflict in 1939 or ever, had no designs on the West, and made no plans for such a war (though he was willing to risk it in his program of revising Versailles and gaining lebensraum in the East). The rest of the book is valuable in a different way: it shows just how conformist the "non-conformist" Taylor can be when approaching the war-as-a-whole. He accepts the "Holocaust" hoax outright, even to the point of blithely repeating some of the more ridiculous claims. And, despite the shady, blundering-quality of its origins, and its disastrous results for the Western Culture, he calls the war "just." Must reading for those who, having read The Origins of the Second World War, wish to understand the limits of Taylor's Revisionism.
Ten Broek, Jacobus, Barnhart, Edward, and Matson, Floyd, Prejudice, War and the Constitution, University of California Press, 1954.
Deals with the evacuation of the Japanese from the Pacific Coast following Pearl Harbor, largely at the insistence of Henry L. Stimson. A serious blot on the record of a country which was about to engage in a battle against Nazi tactics and behavior.
Taracouzio, T. A., War and Peace in Soviet Diplomacy, Macmillan, 1940.
A detailed, well-informed and dispassionate treatment of Soviet diplomacy which provides a good background for understanding the 1939 agreement.
Theobald, R. A., The Final Secret of Pearl Harbor, Devin-Adair, 1954.
Best book on the days immediately preceding Pearl Harbor. Shows that the Washington authorities had ample fore-knowledge of the time and place of the Japanese attack, and that the failure to warn General Short and Admiral Kimmel was due to Roosevelt's order that no warning should be sent, lest their preparations for defense might frighten off the Japanese from rnaking the attack. Theobald also shows that Pearl Harbor was denied a decoding ("Purple" ) machine lest the Pearl Harbor commanders might independently decode Japanese messages and take steps to ward off the attack.
Thomson, G M., The Twelve Days, Putnam, 1964.
Most modern Revisionist book on the causes and outbreak of World War I. Very readable and reveals Winston Churchill as the main warmonger in 1914.
Thompson, H.K., Doenitz at Nuremberg, Amber, 1976.
A collection of critical commentaries on Nuremberg by leading Western military men and politicians.
Tittman, A. O., The Planned Famine, first published 1947, Sons of Liberty reprint ca. 1976.
Tittman, A. O., Incredible Infamy, first published 1947, Sons of Liberty reprint ca. 1976.
Two impassioned contemporary attacks on the brutality and insanity of the Allies' postwar "Morgenthau Plan" (officially endorsed by Roosevelt and Churchill) for the systematic starvation of millions of German men, women, and children. Despite official disclaimers after the revolting details of the plan became public knowledge, many of its provisions were in fact being enacted under JCS Directive 1067. This policy of starvation industry-wrecking, and general economic debilitationdesigned ultimately to reduce Germany to a depopulated "pasture"was abandoned only with the onset of the Cold War and the realization that perhaps live Germans would be more useful to the "democracies" than dead ones.
Tobias, Fritz, The Reichstag Fire, Putnam, 1964.
An exhaustively researched study of the startling incident of January, 1933 which world Communist and affiliated propaganda succeeded in blaming on the Hitler regime at the time. The author, a political opponent of the Nazis, has demonstrated conclusively that the latter were correct in charging the Communists with the commission of this famous act of arson.
Togo, Shigenroi, The Cause of Japan, Simon and Schuster, 1956.
The Japanese Foreign Minister at the time of the Pearl Harbor attack presents the case for Japan, seeking to demonstrate that Japanese policy was based on a desire for peace and that Japan was forced into war for self-preservation. His case would have been greatly strengthened if he had been able to use all of the documents available to the best American writers on the subject. Incidentally, he reveals the fact that the Japanese government sought peace by early spring of 1945 and that the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was entirely unnecessary to bring a quick victory for the Allies.
Tolstoy, Nikolai, The Secret Betrayal, Charles Scribner, 1978.
A descendant of the famous novelist tells the horrific story of the forced repatriation of Russian PoWs and their families.
Trefousse, H. L., Germany and American Neutrality, 1939-1941, Bookman Associates, 1951.
While strongly pro-Roosevelt, this book is the most complete summary of Roosevelt's determined but futile efforts to provoke the Germans to make war on the United States because of our unneutral acts, especially in regard to convoying.
Turner, J. K., Shall It Be Again ? Huebsch, 1922.
Emphasizes the fallacies in the Wilsonian war propaganda, stresses economic factors in our intervention, and reveals that Wilson ultimately accepted the same interpretation of the war for which he imprisoned Eugene Debs.
Turnwald, W. K. Ed., Documents on the Expulsion of the Sudeten Germans, University Press (Munich), 1953.
Extensive source material on the Czech brutalities and massacres during the expulsion of the Germans from the Sudeten area. Shows that the unfortunate episode of Lidice was reproduced many times by the Czechs themselves in their treatment of German expellees, who often turned even to the Russians for protection from the Czechs.
Utley, Freda, The High Cost of Vengeance, Regnery, 1949.
Excellent, readable, well documented account of the cruelties, and of the disasters, to victors and vanquished alike, which resulted from the application of the slightly modified Stalin-White-Morgenthau Plan to conquered Germany after 1945.
Van der Vlugt, Ebed, Asia Aflame, Devin-Adair, 1955.
Vivid and informative book showing the results of the ill-advised Roosevelt plan for destroying the military and naval power of Japan, the only country which could and would have checked Communist penetration and domination of the Far Easl;.
Vary, Colin, The Victims, self-published, P.O. Box 926, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa (available in USA from Noontide), 1979.
An Australian photographer shows how easy it is to fake photographs, and illustrates with some WWII examples.
Veale, F. J. P., Advance to Barbarism, IHR, 1979.
The best general book on the Nurnberg Trials. It not only reveals the illegality, fundamental immorality, and hypocrisy of these trials but also shows how they are bound to make any future world wars (or any important wars) far more brutal and more destructive to life and property. A very readable and impressive volume and a major contribution to any rational peace movement.
Veale, F. J. P., Crimes Discreetly Veiled, IHR, 1979.
Interesting collection of Allied war crimes, with special emphasis on the Russian murder of thousands of Polish officers and nobles in the Katyn Forest.
Viereck, George S., My Flesh and Blood: A Lyric Autobiography With Indiscreet Annotations, Liveright, 1931.
Viereck, George S., Men Into Beasts, Fawcett, 1952.
The two volumes of Viereck's autobiography. In the first, he recounts his Revisionist activities and writings relating to World War I. In the second, he recalls his efforts to keep America out of war, and the ridiculous Sedition Trial of 1944-45, in which prosecutor O. John Rogge (the American "Vyshinsky") attempted to implicate him and others as "agents" in a "Nazi World Conspiracy."
Viereck, G. S., Spreading Germs of Hate, Liveright, 1930.
WWI black propaganda.
Villari, Luigi, Italian Foreign Policy under Mussolini, Devin-Adair, 1956.
Able first-hand presentation of the Italian case by the dean of Italian diplomatic historians. An authoritative and indispensable book.
Villari, Luigi, The Liberation of Italy, C.C. Nelson Co., 1959.
Authoritative account by leading Italian historian and diplomat of the fall of the fascist state in Italy and the massacres carried out by the Communist underground.
Walendy, Udo, Forged Atrocities Malign The German Nation, Vlotho, Germany, 1979. (Available in USA through IHR. )
An interesting collection of WWII "atrocity" photographs, which the author seeks to prove are faked. Some examples more convincing than others.
Walendy, Udo, The Methods of Re-education, Verlag fur Volkstum und Zeitgeschichtforschung, 1979. (Available in USA through IHR.)
The post-war period brought the Germans the blessings not only of "Victors' Justice" (Nurnberg), but of "Victors' Truth" (denazification and re-education). Indeed, this re-education is still going onand not just for the Germans' benefit. In this illustrated 40-page brochure, a distinguished German Revisionist looks critically at democratic-liberal-communist style "re-education," particularly as it pertains to the "Holocaust" and "war-guilt" lies. An interesting section recounts the author's frustrations in trying to find the originals of supposedly incriminating SS-documents: copies abound, but the "originals" are "not available !"
Waller, George M., (ed.), Pearl Harbor: Roosevelt and the Coming of the War, D.C. Heath, revised edition 1965.
An anthology in the "Problems in American Civilization" series. Selections from the Revisionist works of Beard, Tansill, Theobald, Chamberlin and Kimmel share space with the cour thistory of Feis, Rauch, Morison, and Wohlstetter. Paul W. Schroeder offers an anti-Revisionist "Appraisal" at the end, but the Introduction by Waller is a model of scholarly fairness and objectivity.
Waller, Willard, Ed., War in the Twentieth Century, Random House, 1939.
An able and authoritative symposium which treats of the social and cultural impact of war and states the logical lessons taught by the first world war and its aftermath. It was the impressive but ineffective "swan song" of the interwar Revisionism.
Watts, V. O., The United Nations: Planned Tyranny, DevinAdair, 1955.
Self explanatory title.
Wedel, O. H., Austro-German Diplomatic Relations, 1908-1914, Stanford University Press, 1932.
A solid, dispassionate, and well-documented presentation of the Austro-German situation and understandings between the Bosnian crisis and the coming of the first world war.
Wegerer, Alfred von, Origins of the Second World War, R. R. Smith, 1941.
Brief presentation of the German case by a leading German authority on the causes of the first world war. Documents which have since become available make the case against Britain and Poland far more impressive.
Wegerer, Alfred von, Refutation of the Versailles War Guilt Thesis, Knopf, 1930.
The most thorough and competent exposure of the fallacy of the Versailles verdict to the effect that Germany and her Allies were solely responsible for the first world war. Based on a careful study of the latest documents.
Weglyn, Michi, Years of Infamy, William Morrow, 1978.
Now a famous clothes designer, Mrs. Weglyn was one of the unfortunate 120,000 Japanese-Americans to be rounded up in 1941 and interned without trial in a concentration camp. Excellent first-hand and researched material.
Weingartner, Jarnes J., Crossroads of Death, University of California Press, 1979.
A liberal academic examines the "Malmedy Massacre" war crimes trial and finds substantial evidence of U.S. Army torture of German defendants.
Weizsacker, Ernst von, Memoirs, Regnery, 1951.
Reminiscences of the capable and dignified German diplomat who served as State Secretary in the German Foreign Office from 1938 to 1943. Especially valuable for its documentation on events from the Anschluss with Austria in March, 1939, to the outbreak of war with Russia in June, 1941. Critical of von Ribbentrop and sympathetic with the growing opposition to Hitler after 1941.
Wheeler-Bennett, J. W., The Wreck of Reparations, Morrow, 1933.
Best general appraisals of the Reparations fiasco and its effect on world trends.
Whitcomb, Philip W., translator, France During the German Occupation, 1940-1944, 3 vols., The Hoover Institute and Stanford University Press, 1958.
A remarkable collection of materials, amounting to over 1,600 pages, mainly based on affidavits filed by French civilian and military personalities who were part of the wartime regime in France, which give a startlingly-different picture of what happened in France between the debacle of spring, 1940 and the Allied invasion in mid-1944 than is found in the literature of either the "resistance"-guerilla elements or even the Gaullists. A mass of unpublished material about equal to this set and which may be even more revealing remains unpublished in the Hoover Institute archives. Whitcomb was a widely-known correspondent who spent the entire war either in France or adjoining Monaco.
Whitehead, Don, The FBI Story, Random House, 1957.
Contains a cogent chapter: "Espionage Limited," which reveals how the FBI agents at Pearl Harbor were prevented from intercepting and decoding Japanese messages which would have warned General Short and Admiral Kimmel in ample time to repel the attack.
Widener, A., Behind the UN Front, The Bookmailer, 1955.
Severely criticizes the United Nations for its effect on both the foreign relations and the domestic policy of the United States.
Willis, I. C., England's Holy War, Knopf, 1928.
Brilliant and astute debunking of the British war myth, especially as expounded by British Liberals, such as A. G. Gardiner, H G. Wells, and others.
Wilmot, Chester, The Struggle for Europe, Collins, 1952.
Masterly account of the struggle between East, West, and Axis for the European continent. A generally orthodox interpretation (accepting the myth of Nazi war-guilt, and the necessity of the war), it nevertheless severely criticizes the Allied policy of "unconditional surrender," the saturation bombing of Germany, and the Morgenthau Plan mentality. Points out the Western Allies' incredible naivety in dealing with Stalin, and their lack of any real war-aim save a "victory" which proved Pyrric indeed.
Wittmer, Felix, The Yalta Betrayal, Caxton Printers, 1953.
Brief and critical discussion of the Yalta Conference and its unfortunate results.
Wormser, R. A., The Myth of the Good and Bad Nations, Regnery, 1954.
A realistic review of diplomatic, political and military history which devastatingly refutes the now popular conception that wars and oppressive policies are always due to the moral degradation and racial inferiority of enemy peoples. Vindicates Revisionism on a broad historical canvas.
Zawodny, J. K., Death in the Forest, University of Notre Dame Press, 1962.
The definitive account of the murder of some fifteen thousand Polish prisoners of war in the Katyn Forest and elsewhere.
de Zayas, Alfred M., Nemesis at Potsdam, Routledge & Keegan Paul, 1979.
A new edition of this detailed description of the expulsion of millions of ethnic Germans from their homelands in eastern Europe.
Zink, Harold, American Military Government in Germany Macmillan, 1947.
Straight-forward and authoritative account of American military government in occupied Germany.
Zuckerman, Solly, From Apes to Warlords, Harper and Row, 1978.
The memoirs of one of Winston Churchill's wartime scientific advisors, an expert on the effects of aerial bombardment on life, industry, and morale. Zuckerman was co-author of the survey-report which formed the basis for Prof. Lindemann's famous Minute to Churchill of 30 March 1942, advocating saturation-bombing of residential districts in German industrial cities. His comments on Lindemann's misinterpretation of that report, and on the famous Tizard-Lindemann conflict over bombing policy, are illuminating, though ultimately he raises more questions than he answers.
