Item Details

Since the launch of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars the US military has struggled to recruit troops. Kennard believes that the military has opened its doors to neo-Nazis, white supremacists, gang members, criminals of all stripes, the overweight, and the mentally ill. He provides interviews with extremist veterans and leaders of far-right hate groups who spoke openly of their eagerness to have their followers acquire military training for a coming domestic race war. This book is a stark warning about potential dangers facing Americans-- from their own soldiers.

Not war against terror but war for terror and the domestic (U.S.) power that Stalin and Hitler would envy. And you could say that they had a lot within the 1940s technology then available.
