This book has the ability to really strike at the heart of many American
myths. Much of the mythology of the US' "good power" morality which fed into
the entire post-WWII Cold War myths are wrapped up in the "goodness" of WWII
and our "innocent" entry into the war.
Stinnet's research is a blessing. Though the book isn't the most "flowing"
or literary read, many will be surprised to learn that allegations of
mischief about the Pearl Harbor attack date back to 1941. Add to that
revelations like Washington ordering the Pacific Fleet back to port and
banning it from precisely the area where the Japanese attacked from will be
amazing to most readers.
The "Good War" mythology needs to be popped. Sure, defeating German and
Japanese militarism was a blessing for the world, but Stinnet's research will
help many to realize that one form of militarism was just replaced by
"The important thing is not to stop questioning." -- Albert Einstein
