What was the historical context for WWII’ Was it a just war, or a fable rooted in propaganda’ Accepted history says WWII was an inevitable war forced upon a peaceful people, because of a surprise attack by a sneaky enemy. But then, as now, war is a carefully-constructed package sold as a life-and-death battle against pure evil. The author argues that the Great War was really about power, money, and imperialism. Myths explored include: * The allies fought to liberate the death camps * The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise * Hiroshima and Nagasaki were necessary * WWII was fought to end fascism * Only the Axis nations committed war crimes
