American Betrayal, Diana West’s new best seller, turns our nation’s traditional notion of pre WWII and post WWII history upside down. The hard forensic (documentary) evidence she presents incited, or rather ignited, a vitriolic, vicious, mendacious, ad hominem shotgun blast from the likes of former revolutionary Communists David Horowitz and Ronald Radosh. Diana’s very character came under unjustified assault.
I read and reviewed American Betrayal. I gave it 5 Stars.
Diana just published a point by point rebuttal of the literary excrement which Horowitz and Radosh hurled in her direction. Radosh’s original libel, entitled McCarthy on Steroids, was over 7,000 words in length. Diana’s 20,000+ words surgical refutation of the attack is actually longer than some of my books. Every word was necessary. Diana West does not waste phrases. The record now stands for history to judge her as an author and credible historian, against the low-blows that were swung at her during this war against American Betrayal.
I highly recommend that you read her book and the rebuttal to the Horowitz/Radosh sucker-punches.
