    Those Angry Days by Lynne Olson.

    It is the story of the entrance of the US into WWII, and the conflicts between the Isolationists vs. the Interventionists.

    This book was really, really good. I rated it 5 stars.

    :c

    Large segments of the country. Many people wanted to stay out, but just as many understood the ramifications of the times.

    I am ready to start a campaign to have Lindbergs name removed from our Airport. Why the fuck is our airport named after a Nazi sympathizer? Motherfucker received medals from the Nazis.

    No, but my Dad did, asswipe.
