Charles Callan Tansill, one of the foremost American diplomatic historians of the twentieth century, convincingly argues that Franklin Roosevelt wished to involve the United States in the European War that began in September 1939. When his efforts appeared to come to naught, Roosevelt determined to provoke Japan into an attack on American territory. Doing so would involve Japan's Axis allies in war also, and so America would thus enter the war through the "back door". The strategy succeeded, and Tansill maintains that Roosevelt therefore welcomed Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. Tansill demonstrates quite convincingly his central theme: that FDR sought to include the United States in the Second World War on the side of the Soviet Union from the very beginning, and duped the Japanese into firing the first shot. Tansill proves his premise by the usage of extensive primary material from US State Department files, current periodicals, and sound reasoning.

Blue cloth boards gilt lettered at spine, clean, clear, square, flat, sharp, white dustjacket green lettered, light chipping at spine head, small scuff on front cover. This is the story of a fight for truth that Tansil was sure to be able to prove. The truth at issue involves the background of American intervention in World War II. Why a fight was necessary is part of the story. Charles Callan Tansill was an outstanding (he died in 1964) authority on American diplomatic history. Mr. Tansill pushed his investigation back to include the indispensable correspondence of Henry Stimson during his term as Secretary of State under President Hoover between 1929 and 1933. He concludes that the record is clear, the foreign policy of the Roosevelt Administration pointed straight to war while the President talked of peace.
