Publisher's Summary

Most Americans have grown accustomed to accept the version of history that the Soviets were our noble allies and took the brunt of the casualties during World War II. But after decades of research by veteran journalist M. Stanton Evans and intelligence expert Herbert Romerstein, the truth has come to light and is now exposed in Stalin's Secret Agents.

Evans and Romerstein focus on the role of secret Communist Alger Hiss at the crucial Yalta Conference of 1945, where vast U.S. concessions were made to Russia, and the maneuvers of numerous other Soviet agents to serve the ends of Moscow. Fascinating details about the fall of China, Yugoslavia, and Poland to Communist domination as well as the identities of key conspirators in high places are revealed. The authors recount the steps by which the penetration occurred under FDR, the influence wielded by such advisers as Harry Hopkins and Henry Morgenthau, and the indifference of U.S. officials during this time. Also included are riveting details about the multi-layered cover-up - including rigged grand jury sessions - and the extent of the theft of secrets are sure to surprise and stun listeners everywhere.

    "Stalin actually ran our war policy!"
    What did you love best about Stalin's Secret Agents?

    The amazing research that produced this book is clear, well written, and well analyzed. It is astonishing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harry Dexter White, because he was one of the best agents Stalin had. He and his fellow agents were able to shape America WWII policy and helped Stalin use America to enlarge his Communist Empire!


    What about Alan Sklar’s performance did you like?

    good listen.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When I realized that so many Russian agents had taken over policy positions in the American government and pushed us into a war that claimed 500 thousand American lives.


    Any additional comments?

    Every single American should read/listen to this book. This is truly and excellent academic study of a subject that will be shocking to all Americans: The Soviet Leader, Joe Stalin, actually was able to use his agents in the American government to shape our war policy to help him enlarge his empire. If made into a movie, no one would believe it, and it is all true.

    Story
    "Now it all becomes clear..."
    What made the experience of listening to Stalin's Secret Agents the most enjoyable?

    ....All those U.S. WWII policies that don't make sense. Why was the U.S. so solicitous of Nationalist China so to foment war with Japan, only to three years later, dismiss China as feudal and corrupt? Why the insistence on unconditional surrender for both Germany and Japan? Why was Lend Lease to the Soviets so generous with nothing given in return? Why did the U.S. encourage the Soviets to enter the war against Japan, though the U.S. was on the cusp of victory? Why the vengeful Morgenthau Plan, that spurred the Germans to desperate fighting against the Western Allies, though the Red Army to the East was sweeping down?

    Defenders of the Roosevelt Administration need conjure sundry and tortured explanations for how each of these inane policies were in the U.S. interest. The readers of Stalin's Secret Agents will, like Occam, have one explanation.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stalin's Secret Agents?

    The Truman Justice rigging of the Grand Jury.
