5 Star – Riveting First Person Account

I know the author personally, and was introduced to him by Sterling Seagrave (RIP), whom I also knew personally. Sterling was for me the top chronicler of Asian history both sordid and splendid. One of his books (linked below) that comes with three CDs of maps, photos, and data, is worth multiple trillions of dollars provided the Guardians of the individual sites can be won over.

David Irving

6 Star — Truthful History That Exposes Zionist-Controlled Lies Across Academia & Publishing

I “woke up” to the reality of my government lying about everything when 9/11 went down and it was immediately obvious to me that this was a false flag event, no airplanes, all pre-planned.

Then I encountered the work of Ernst Zundel and found his work — including his legal victory against Zionists defamers and liars in Canada — to be totally compelling. I added to my already extensive reading a new thread, seeking the truth on Zionism, Palestine, and — after reading Peter Dale Scott and David Ray Griffin — the Deep State.

Parag Khanna

5 Stars – Utterly brilliant insights and data, but publisher should have invested in graphics to match

Parag Khanna is for me the single best observer and reporter on the substance of Asia which he takes great pains to point out is not just China (a third of Asia’s population) but includes particularly vast swaths of Russia, India, Central Asia, Southeast Asia including Indonesia and Australia, and Turkey.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hidden Aspects of Race and Class in American History, July 26, 2016 by Herbert Calhoun

This book explains the unsavory fine points of our national identity by probing and then exposing the not so well hidden loose ends that tie the bottom half of America's social hierarchy to the top half. It reveals that there is much much more to race and class than what we see at eye level. We learn here that the colonists who came to the Americas were very much a mixed bag.

Gerd-Helmut Komossa

5 stars World-Changing Book

Needs to be translated into English, Russia, and French as soon as possible. He details a 1949 agreement that subordinates Germany as a vassal state to the USA and blindly loyal to any NATO initiative however insane. The agreement supposedly runs for another 90 years. The book needs to be translated into English, Russian, and French as soon as possible. It could and should lead to the fall of the German government, the cancellation of the agrement, the expulsion of all US forces and headquarters from Germany, and the de-Americanicanization if not the complete eradication of NATO. Even if the agreement does not exist — I am inclined to belief the author, that some such agreement does exist — Germany has been acting as an extension of the USA, and the book is a foundation for a national conversation in Germany that could end that state of abject subordination and contributory financial, political, and social crimes against the German people as well as other publics.

Michael Kearns, Ronald Solomon

5 Stars. Classic thriller: how a nation was “broken” by torture and drone policies gone beserk

By Jeffrey S. Kaye on September 19, 2015

Michael Kearns and Ronald Solomon have written one of the most important books of the year, and one of the most entertaining. Drawing on Kearns' experience in the military, especially his years training military personnel, intelligence agents, and other government employees in the Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape, or SERE, program for the Pentagon's Joint Personnel Recovery Agency, Kearns and Solomon have constructed a thriller about a high-tech, drone-enabled takeover of America that seems all too real, chiseled out of the headlines we read every day. And just as scary!

James G. Zumwalt

5.0 out of 5 stars Oral History at Its Best — Relevant to Future Strategy, Policy, Acquisition, Tactics, June 29, 2015

I received this book as a gift from the author, a fellow Marine retired as a Lieutenant Colonel, sometimes mistaken for his father, Admiral Zumwalt. I have gone through it twice. It is immediately in my top five books on Viet-Nam from an intelligence point of view, the other four books being:
