Product Description


'...There are only two possibilities: either Berlin will be capital of the world or Washington' - Adolf Hitler. November 1941 The Second World War can not be fully understood unless it is seen for what it was: a struggle for world domination between the United States and Nazi Germany. Based on both Allied and German sources, Toughill's firsthand research examines that rivalry and for the first time provides convincing answers to many of the questions about the war which have, until now, remained unanswered: Why did Hitler declare war on the United States? What is the truth behind the Allies' policy of 'unconditional surrender'? Why did the Germans stand behind Hitler in the face of overwhelming odds? Why did the Allies leave Berlin to Stalin, the Soviet dictator? At the centre of A World to Gain stands President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the man who rid the world of a great evil and in the process made the United States the most powerful country on earth - all 'at virtually no cost'. How he achieved this extraordinary feat is examined in fascinating detail with new evidence - including forged Cabinet Papers - which is so startling that it will force a major reappraisal of WWII.

Toughill pays particular attention to Roosevelt's advisors: William 'Wild Bill' Donovan, the President's Spymaster, whose cunning helped bring America into the war; Douglas Miller, who publicly called for America to attack Germany 'from the West'; and George Marshall, the US Chief of Staff, who urged the 'complete military defeat of Germany'. Understanding exactly what happened during that dreadful conflict is essential to ensuring that Europe never again suffers such a catastrophe - and Toughill's work is an essential aide to fulfilling this task. Roosevelt justified his wartime policies on the grounds that they offered a reasonable guarantee of world peace for 50 years. Those 50 years have since passed...
