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!

A Triumph!

Great book by Donald Jeffries! This guy is a fearless truthteller and researcher. You think you understand our history? Better think again, and read (or listen to) this book! And prepare for your sacred cows to be tipped over! Very enjoyable journey of discovery. 5 Stars! I thought the narrator did a fine job as well.

Refreshing to hear the truth about these things.

Absolutely fascinating and disturbing at the same time. Gives you a better idea as to why things are such a mess in politics now.

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.

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.

Poor book with a some things to think

If your looking for a book about cover ups this is not that book. If you want a book that goes through the history of the USA with a Libertarian slant then this is the book for you. The good guys are the conspiracy theorists (words of the book) anti Bank and America should only deal with America. the last one is not all bad but you can stay in isolation. The bad guys banks, "Court Historians", Masons and the establishment. A premise of the book is good, which is look at those you love with the same eye as those you hate and you will find some uncomfortable truths

Unfortunately this is not kept to by the author with blink and you will miss it vague mentions of stuff with people he loves. Anyone who dies young he likes there must be more to it. Now there are stuff in the book true such as just because you fight to end slavery does not mean you were not a racist. I won't go into his reasons behind the civil war. Allies crimes during wars are another. then there the conspiracies dotted around. Most if not all CIA stuff is real as are experiments carried out. Most of the stuff in relation to people are out there in history book not just conspiracy and I would urge everyone to read up on all as it will make you think. Poor book
