Would you consider the audio edition of American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character to be better than the print version?
Apples to oranges. Both are essential. I like audio books, but like to own print versions of standouts like this one.
What did you like best about this story?
Its careful, thoughtful, detailed revealing of the suppressed historical record on WW II, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Hopkins, Alger Hiss, Lend-Lease and how all these factors combined to a US policy devoted to appeasing Stalin, which has the effect of trading a National Socialist dictator for an International Communist one. The story shows how the consequences of those actions are glaringly evident in today's appeasement policies toward's Islamic Jihadist and our increasingly PC/Marxist culture.
What about Diana West’s performance did you like?
West's narration is superb. Her pleasant, relaxed overall style of reading makes her occasional sarcastic inflections in some passages stand out as dramatically powerful to accent a particular point. Additionally, West uses an array of character choices to not only better highlight quotes, but to add entertainment value to an already fascinating, yet startling narrative.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Hard to pick just one. There were several. Of particular note was the revelation of how US troops were needlessly abandoned in the Pacific Theater of the war in order to execute Stalin's future plans of conquering Eastern Europe; George Racey Jordon's brave heroics; The Katyn Forest Massacre; the revelation that US planes were flying overhead and could have prevented some of the horrors of Auschwitz, how the war could have ended by 1943; but most startling of all was the revelation of how our US president allowed Stalin to keep up to 20,000 or so US POWs in brutal conditions with barely a fight, and has yet to own up to it.
Any additional comments?
I hope West narrates her other books and makes them available on Audible, soon.
