Description


General Butler's screed crosses all ideological boundaries.Originally printed in 1935, War Is a Racket is General
Smedley Butler's frank speech describing his role as a soldier as nothing more
than serving as a puppet for big-business interests. The introduction discusses
why General Butler went against the corporate war machine and how he exposed a
fascist coup d'etat plot against President Franklin Roosevelt. Widely
appreciated and referenced by left- and right-wingers alike, this is an extraordinary
argument against war - more relevant now than ever.


This elegant new edition includes additional photos from the
notorious 1932 anti-war book The Horror of It by Frederick A. Barber and two
never-before-published anti-interventionist essays by General Butler.
