KIRKUS REVIEW

To the audience that cherishes John T. Flynn's close to scurrilous attacks on Roosevelt and everything he did; to the Westbrook Pegler rooter, to others who approach foreign policy problems (and there are many raised by Yalta) with mind made up, this book will be greeted with cheers. But even some of this audience will question the taste in some of the cheap innuendoes, and it is these that stand out in a text of which only a relatively small percentage is devoted to even remotely objective an appraisal of the happenings and results of that ill-fated conference. The very purpose of this historical essay is destroyed by substitution of name-calling and abuse for an impersonal array of facts that might prove their own points. It certainly will make no converts to his thesis that Yalta betrayed the American public.
