Description

Originally printed in 1953, War is a Racket was the interventionist speech of the most decorated soldier in American history, a man twice awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, who was to be made the facist American leader in a 1932 coup d'etat. Instead, he exposed the attempt with this impressive, plain-speaking speech, one that has proven to be as popular with both peaceniks and anti-interventionists as it is extremely rare. This new edition offers an introduction contextualising Butler's speech and its importance on both sides of the fence decades after.
