BOOKSTwelve American Wars: Nine of Them Avoidable By Eugene G. Windchy Author of Tonkin Gulf (“Superb investigative reporting.” — N.Y. Times ) Tricks, errors, and secret plans have taken the U.S. into avoidable wars. One trick: Britain’s routing the Lusitania into extreme danger and canceling the ship’s convoy. Far more cunning was how the Allies, not the Germans, instigated the Great War itself. Paris 1914: “C’est ma guerre!” declared the Russian ambassador. A prominent anti-war socialist vowed to expose the Franco-Russian intrigue. The next day he was shot to death. Clarion: “Well considered.” Kirkus: “Shocking, meticulous.” Available at Amazon.com
