Publisher's Summary

Was aviation pioneer and popular American hero Charles A. Lindbergh a Nazi sympathizer and anti-Semite? Or was he the target of a vicious personal vendetta by President Roosevelt?
In Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt, author James Duffy tackles these questions head-on by examining the conflicting personalities, aspirations, and actions of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Charles A. Lindbergh.
Painting a politically incorrect portrait of both men, Duffy shows how the hostility between these two American giants divided the nation on both domestic and international affairs. From canceling U.S. airmail contracts to intervening in World War II, Lindbergh and Roosevelt’s clash of ideas and opinions shaped the nation’s policies here and abroad.
Insightful and engaging, Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt reveals the untold story about two of history’s most controversial men and how the White House waged a smear campaign against Lindbergh that blighted his reputation forever.

I want my money back

Another revisionist take on the 'evil' Roosevelt. Seconds into the introduction he bashes Obama. I thought this was a history of the relationship between these two men? I want my money back.

Revisionist history

Lindburgh was a known anti-semite. He and Henry Ford would spend hours and hours talking about their hatred of the jews. This is documented by numerous sources including Ford, yet this book tries weakly to claim otherwise.

There is a reason why Roosevelt didnt like Lindy. Lindy was a german sympathizer. Lindburgh helped Hermann Goering build up the german luftwaffe. These are again, known and undisputed facts.

This book does nothing to put Lindburgh in any positive light.
