American History says the United States won the war against the Nazis in Europe. But is that the real story? Author Richard J. Trattner suggests new research says otherwise.FDR WWII: It Took Sixty Years for the Historians to Catch Up with Him isMoreAmerican History says the United States won the war against the Nazis in Europe. But is that the real story? Author Richard J. Trattner suggests new research says otherwise.FDR WWII: It Took Sixty Years for the Historians to Catch Up with Him is the story you didnt know. Trattner relies on research done after 2000 to challenge the American view, saying it was actually the Soviet Union-and not America-that defeated Adolf Hitlers murderous regime. He goes on to suggest that President Franklin D. Roosevelts policies actually led to American GIs dying decades after the end of the war.American military history has produced sixty years of bad conditioning for me to overcome, says Trattner. He credits much of his hypothesis to newly emerging research, including papers now open to the public in Russia.Trattner is a retired lawyer and former assistant US attorney. He is the author of the novel 1944: The Year the Holocaust Came to America. His newest book will leave you wondering whether what you learned in school about the war was true at all.
