5.0 out of 5 stars British propaganda efforts to trick U.S. into entering WWI Dec 29 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I am so glad to find this title and order it. Although it's been years since I read this book while a student at the U.S. Army Intelligence School, its impact on my awareness of propaganda and allied persuasive activities has stayed with me. The author, an insider in the campaign to trick the U.S. into joining Britain in WWI, covers in detail the various levels and means of deception employed by the British, and coordinated by a single committee charged with succeeding in bringing the US into the war. Financial bondage (because the British purposely set out to borrow so much of our money that we could not afford to let them lose), lecturers and actors on tour circuits around our country, political intrigues, "spin-doctored" news and propaganda, planting a fake diplomatic telegram, the Lusitania affair, and, of course, Colonel House, the anglophile counselor to Wilson's White House, were some of the ploys used.
