Publisher's Summary

The history that the textbooks left out.

For far too long, American history has been left in the unreliable hands of those that author Donald Jeffries refers to as the court historians. American Crimes and Cover-Ups: 1776-1963 fights back by scrutinizing the accepted history of everything from the American War of Independence to the establishment reputation of Thomas Jefferson and the other Founding Fathers, the Civil War, the Lincoln assassination, both World Wars, US government experimentation on prisoners, mental patients, innocent children and whole populated areas, the Lindbergh baby kidnapping and much, much more. Secular saints like Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Franklin D. Roosevelt are examined in a critical way they seldom have been. 

Jeffries spares no one and nothing in this explosive new book. The atrocities of Union troops during the Civil War, and Allied troops during World War II, are documented in great detail. The Nuremberg Trials are presented as the antithesis of justice. In the follow-up to his previous, bestselling book Hidden History: An Exposé of Modern Crimes, Conspiracies, and Cover-Ups in American Politics, Jeffries demonstrates that crimes, corruption, and conspiracies didn't start with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. 

History should be much more than cardboard villains and impossibly unrealistic heroes. Thanks to the efforts of the court historians, most Americans are historically illiterate. American Crimes and Cover-Ups: 1776-1963 is a bold attempt at setting the record straight.

Southern apologetic nonesense

from the reviews, it seemed like a good idea. The fact that Ron Paul gave the foreword should have been my first clue. This person selectively chooses to "analyze" the paper-thin evidence to support libertarian views, to go so far as to try to re-write history that is indisputable. my example comes from the last chapter I could stomach, which begins to refute the principal reason for Southern Cessation. Please quit revising and excusing slavery, it's embarrassing.

Necessary history of some of our worst presidents

Although I already know much of what is covered in this volume, the detail & entertainment value is priceless. Additionally, Lars Mikaelson is an excellent reader. Highly recommend!

Perfect.

I think this was a recommendation and for once it worked. Great, origin detail, and interesting facts then moved along. I believe there's truth to most of the conspiracies investigated but the usual writers belabor the known and Jefferies does a quick synopsis then smoothly makes his case with convincing and yet familiar prosecution of firm facts. I finished it and bought another. Enjoyed that too. Waiting for the most part recent to add audio because I listen alot while I work around the home.

Eye opening info

Donald Jeffries is a great investigative journalist. There is so much information in this book that you won’t hear from main stream media or reporters. Sometimes the truth isn’t pretty, and it is all brought to the forefront here.

Interesting book but author was condescending

Would have liked the book better if the author had just given the facts and not continually inserted his personal biases. The author was very condescending throughout. The narrator did a good job portraying this attitude. Learned a lot about Americans and human behavior in general but could have done without the high and mighty lecturing from the author.
