Read Books Ltd, 2016 M09 26 - 324 pages
This is a detailed account of The America First Committee, with information on their efforts, organisation, notable members and events, contemporary politics, and more. The America First Committee (AFC) was the foremost United States non-interventionist pressure group against the American entry into World War II. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in the Second World War, and it would make for an interesting addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "The Genesis", "Leadership, Organisation, and Finances", "The Great Arsenal of Democracy?", "War or Peace?", "Capitalism, Communism, and Catholicism", "Military Defence", "The Nazi Transmission Belt?", "Anti-Semitism and America First", "Shoot on Sight", "Politics", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
