Reeling from the devastation of World War I, many Americans vowed never again to become involved in European conflicts. This stance was formalized in 1935 when Congress passed the first Neutrality Act, which was not only designed to keep America out of foreign wars but also called for the president to declare an immediate embargo of arms and munitions to all belligerent countries. As war loomed and eventually erupted in 1939, President Franklin D. Roosevelt instituted several policies that aided the Allies, and American neutrality was questionable many months before the attack on Pearl Harbor. This work examines how Roosevelt navigated prewar neutrality to push the United States toward intervention on the side of the Allies in World War II, and considers critically his wartime policy of unconditional surrender and his unprecedented acceptance of a fourth term. It covers his prewar policies that sidestepped neutrality, including covert submarine warfare, air patrol of the North Atlantic, the Lend Lease Act and coordination between the American and British navies, and critiques his plans for rebuilding postwar Europe. Thirteen appendices parallel prewar planning by Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, and reproduce such key documents as the Atlantic Charter and the Potsdam Declaration.

Descrizione libro McFarland & Co Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condizione: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The year 1917 found most of the world - including the United States - reeling from the effects of war. By the end of World War I, most Americans had vowed never again to become involved in European problems. In 1935, with war between Germany and Britain increasingly imminent, this stance was formalized. Congress passed the first Neutrality Act, which was not only designed to keep America out of foreign wars, but also called for the president to declare an immediate embargo of arms and munitions to all belligerent countries. This, however, ran contrary to the war policy of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Convinced that the Allies could not win their war against Germany without American intervention, Roosevelt began a series of subtle attempts to motivate America's entry into World War II. Focusing on the period 1940 to 1945, this work examines a number of political maneuvers and events, which the author sees as Franklin D. Roosevelt's blatant attempt to propel the United States into an active role in World War II. Covert submarine warfare against German vessels, U.S. naval repair of British war ships, American air patrol of the North Atlantic and coordination between U.S. and British navies are all sited as proof of Roosevelt's real intentions with regard to American involvement in the war. Roosevelt's policy of "unconditional surrender," which ultimately cost additional lives, and his ill-advised decision to seek a fourth term are considered as further evidences of FDR's deceptions and ultimate disregard for his country's welfare. Appendices provide a basis for comparison of Woodrow Wilson's and Roosevelt's administrations through the Zimmerman Telegram of 1917 and Wilson's Fourteen Points from 1918. In addition, these addendums contain contemporary 1940s documents, such as the Atlantic Charter, the United Nations Declaration and the Potsdam Declaration. The work is also indexed.
