ix + 420 pp, Appendices, Notes, Selected Bibliography, Index. The author "reveals how during the first half of 1948, Truman and the two most important members of his cabinet, Marshall and Forrestal, systematically deceived Congress and the public into thinking that the USSR was about to launch World War II with an invasion of Western Europe. As Professor Kofsky demonstrates, however, virtually every intelligence report coming into Washington-from military and civilian sources alike-asserted the exact opposite: that the Soviets were far too exhausted from battling the Nazis even to think about undertaking such an attack. . . Kofsky shows that Truman and his associates were willing to lie to the country in order to push through their foreign policy program, inaugurate a huge military buildup, and bail out the near-bankrupt aircraft industry."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall; Signed by Author
