From the acclaimed author ofNew Deal or Raw Deal?, an “eye-opening” (National Review) exposÉ of FDR’s destructive wartime policies.Did World War II really end the Great Depression? This provocative new book by historians Burton W. Folsom, Jr. and Anita Folsom arugues "no," and makes a compelling case that FDR’s presidency led to evasive and self-serving wartime policies.     History books tell us the wartime economy was a boon, thanks to massive government spending. But skyrocketing national debt, food rations, nonexistent luxuries, and crippling taxes tell a different story. The war ushered in a new era of imperialism for the executive branch. Roosevelt seized private property, conducted illegal wiretaps, and interned 110,000 Japanese Americans. He set a dangerous precedent for entangling alliances in foreign affairs, including his courtship of Russian dictator Joseph Stalin, while millions of Americans showed the courage and fortitude to make the weapons and fight the war.     An illuminating and thought-provoking revisionist history, FDR Goes to Warmakes America take a second look at one of its most complicated presidents.
