So I decided to pick up a history book from Borders a little while back. Despite being written by Pat Buchanan, I decided to give it a shot and least open my horizons to other ideas. What a huge mistake on my part and a waste of $20. I get through the first couples page to the Preface first off, and I quote from the book: "Had Britain not given a war guarantee to Poland in March 1939, then declared war on September 3, bringing in South Africa, Canada, Australia, India, New Zealand, and the United States, a German-Polish war might have never become a six-year world war in which fifty million would perish." I had to stop right there, just due to the amount of ignorance in that one sentence. Pat seems to ignore EVERYTHING known about Hitler up to that point. Such as the annexing of Austria and Czechoslovakia. I understand Pat is a isolationist but Hitler would of continued across the globe, butchering the Jews and others and creating the Holocaust. Looking up the reviews to the book, it doesn't get any better from there on in. I just find it amazing in 2007 or even 2010 how some can be so ignorant as to still believe that Hitler was a rational person who truly was not out to conquer the world. /rant end Tl;dr Don't buy this book if you want my recommendation.
