Customer Reviews
Avg. Customer Review: 5.0 out of 5 stars

5 out of 5 stars Disturbing but compelling, November 30, 2003

Reviewer: catallergest from New York, New York United States
Not for people with a weak stomach. Truly shocking. This is a disturbing, fascinating look at the sorry history of rampant anti-Semitism in the officer corps of the U.S. Army.

I almost literally could not put this book down, as the weight of facts was extraordinarily compelling. This book contains disturbing vignettes about prominent generals such as George Patton--described here as a crude anti-Semite--as well as Marshall and Eisenhower. It focuses on Army Intelligence, and is a shocking, dispassionate portrayal of how almost Nazi-like racial theories were widely adopted by Army officers in the years before World War II. As portrayed by Bendersky, anti-Semitism was a disease that infected not only G-2 Army Intelligence, but the State Department (such as future CIA head Allen Dulles) and Congress. All rigorously documented.

A must read for anyone interested in either U.S. military history or contemporary Jewish history, and is also a fascinating look at the beginnings of modern Army intelligence.
