Review:

"What a drama! ...reminds us that the destiny of the republic hung in the balance in the Great Debate." "A finely wrought, careful, and utterly damning case that ought to prompt a widespread reevaluation of both Ford and Lindbergh." ""The American Axis" provides insightful lessons about how the twin spectacles of power and hate operated in a previous generation." --"The Washington Post" "What a drama! Two of the most popular figures in 20th century America--Henry Ford and Charles Lindbergh--pitted against a third--Franklin Delano Roosevelt--over what to do about Adolf Hitler. Max Wallace reminds us that the destiny of the republic hung in the balance in the Great Debate of 1940-41." --Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., author of "The Age of Roosevelt" and (with Robert F. Kennedy) "Thirteen Days" "A tireless excavation of the dark facts surrounding Ford and Lindbergh's relationship with the Third Reich. Wallace's extensive investigation probes three and four layers deeper than others, pulls no punches, names names, and creates a powerful historical document." --Edwin Black, author of" IBM and the Holocaust" "Eye-opening . . . A finely wrought, careful, and utterly damning case that ought to prompt a widespread reevaluation of both Ford and Lindbergh." --"Kirkus Reviews" "A seminal book, groundbreaking in its documentation of American celebrity collaboration with the Third Reich. Max Wallace exposes Henry Ford as an amoral business thug who promoted anti-Semitism and Nazism for profit. Lindbergh's reputation is utterly shredded by the careful analysis of newly released classified files, which expose him as a bigot and Hitler's willing pawn. Wallace rebuts line by line the Ford Company's recent attempts to sanitize its Nazi past and skewers corporate spin with devastating documentation from Ford's own files. "The American Axis" is that rare work of balance: biography, scholarship, and celebrity scandal. My pick for the most powerful book of the year." --John Loftus, author of "The Secret War Against the Jews" ""The American Axis provides insightful lessons about how the twin spectacles of power and hate operated in a previous generation." --"The Washington Post "What a drama!
