    This is a very entertaining book. While Hoover presents his case that war never should have come to the USA, some of his writing is rather deceptive. Ch 41 really bother me. Hoover mentions Pearl Harbor, the date the USA declared war on Japan and the date the USA declared war on Germany. But he left out a key date, Germany declared war on the USA before we declared war on Germany. He also presents counts for Allied naval ships sunk by July 1942 yet there is NO mention of Midway and he says the J [...]

    Human beings are far better at identifying mistakes in our opponents than in ourselves. Herbert Hoover exemplifies this tendency in his final book, Freedom Betrayed, which he wrote over two decades. He finished it in 1963 and intended to publish it, but died in 1964 at age 90. His heirs decided to put the manuscript in storage for nearly half a century until 2011.The 900-page tome covers familiar history, and defends Hoover's positions at the time, such as his opposition to FDR's 1933 recognitio [...]

    A well written book that remained hidden in Hoover's Library for almost 50 years. I'm not sure why Hoover spent so many years writing something that he didn't want read. I'm not sure I agree with Hoover that if we had stayed out of the war, Germany would have only moved East and avoided a western war with England and France. Hitler, I believe wanted all of Europe.

    I highly recommend this book. It is the memoirs of Herbert Hoover. In the book, he covers another side to the events leading up to World War II and our nation's time throughout the 1940s and early 1950s. It is remarkable to note the spread of communism detailed within the book from before WWII to the end of the Korean War. It also addresses the relationships and meetings between FDR, Churchill, Stalin, and Chiang Kai-shek. It discusses the many charters that we created to thwart the Nazi party a [...]

    If you want an alternate (revisionist) view of the run up to WWII, and the debris that came in its wake, you'll find this book worth the effort -- if only to get Hoover's take on things, circa the early '60's. Hoover was raised a Quaker, and his anti-war instincts serve him well in this, his magnum opus (the term he used to described this effort). The book is meant to supply 11 theses (from document 8 in the appendix):1. War between Germany and Russia was inevitable.2. Hitler's attack on Western [...]

    The last mention of Herbert Hoover in most history textbooks is his defeat at the hands of Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1932 presidential election. For as little attention as Hoover’s post-presidential career receives, he may as well have died quietly the day after his electoral defeat. But he didn’t. Rather, Hoover spent the remaining 32 years of his life actively involved in humanitarian work, domestic politics and international relations. Already a critic of FDR’s New Deal, Hoover recog [...]

    I read about a 1/3 of this book a couple of years ago. Hoover does not give much background to World War II he dives right into his analysis. I picked this book up after having a broader knowledge of World War II and its causes and was able to quickly digest it. Hoover's premise is that FDR's statesmanship not only entered us into a unnecessary war but allying with the Soviet Union was the wrong thing to do. Hoover puts forth the idea that the US should have stayed out of the European War and le [...]

    This book is a tome! I highly doubt I will finish this book, but I'll still learn a great deal. I'm very interested in Hoover because he seems a mysterious figure, not much is known about him, but I've already learned that after his presidency he was very involved in public life and heartily disapproved of Roosevelt's policies. He was also great friends with Rose Wilder Lane and discussed politics for several decades. Because of this relationship her papers are kept with his at the Hoover Librar [...]

    A long time goal of the communist is to infiltrate the education system. Read this book and ask why you were never taught the context of events that led up to what we know as WWII. The proof is in the outcome. The war was fought in defense of communism. The cost was born by taxpayers of the United States. Hoover lays it out how it all happened.

    Oh my goodness, why does it cost so much?!!! Lot's of money for a book that was written 50 years ago.Written by Hoover himself.Heard about it on lewrockwell/lewrockwel

    Great piece of work documenting a view of WWII that isn't commonly taught.
