Written by Smedley Butler
Paperback: 39 pages
Publisher: Gainesville, Fla (1995)
General Smedley Butler’s frank book shows how American war efforts were animated by big-business interests. This extraordinary argument against war by an unexpected proponent is relevant now more than ever.
In this short book, retired Marine Corps Major General Smedley D. Butler, winner of two Congressional Medals of Honor, describes his understanding of the motivations and causes of America's turn-of-the-century international wars (AKA: The Banana Wars) in the Carribean, South America, and China.
Here, General Butler explains the actual motivations for 'fighting for the USA' beyond the USA's borders and shores. The reader will learn how big business, hand-in-hand with government, is often the reason we get into wars outside our own country.
An extremely interesting book, complex yet clearly written, "War is a Racket" is relevant to today's situation and will help you understand how we choose our overseas fights and why we fight them.
