Synopsis: 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.
From the Inside Flap:
DON?T BELIEVE THE HYPE
If asked about Charles Lindbergh?s political beliefs, most Americans would instinctively respond that Lindbergh supported the Nazis. Despite his innumerable contributions to American aviation, including his pioneering solo flight across the Atlantic, Lindbergh?s supposed sympathy for Nazi Germany continues to cloud his reputation even decades after his death.
There?s only one problem: it?s not true. In Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt, James P. Duffy reveals the real history of Charles Lindbergh: he was an American patriot who was subject to one of the most successful smear campaigns in American history. Angered by Lindbergh?s criticism, President Roosevelt launched against him a crusade of personal destruction that was eagerly propagated by FDR?s supporters throughout the government and the media.
This groundbreaking book reveals:
The initial clash between Lindbergh and Roosevelt over a misguided FDR policy that caused more than a dozen deaths
Lindbergh?s long–standing antipathy to the Nazis, including his vital espionage activities against the Third Reich
The Roosevelt administration?s shocking private discussions of their vendetta against Lindbergh
Why the popular belief that Lindbergh was an anti–Semite is absolutely wrong
Why Roosevelt, not Lindbergh, deserves to be remembered for serving foreign interests
A vital corrective to years of misinformation, Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt shows how a powerful president systematically turned an extraordinary American hero into a modern–day Benedict Arnold—an image that endures to this very day.
