Mark Weber :: July 13, 2008

Weber, together with host James Edwards and co-host Bill Roland talk about the new books, articles and television broadcasts that are challenging the familiar view of World War II history, including the recently published book by Patrick J. Buchanan. During this hour-long guest appearance, Weber explains what’s behind this new and growing skepticism about the official “Good War” mythology, and why it’s important. He dissects some widely-accepted myths about the war, and spells out why the outcome was a major setback for Europe and the West. The great victors – the United States and the Soviet Union – worked to establish a “new world order” based on an egalitarian-universalist ideology.
