Americans today have an almost identical recollection of World War Two as the “good war”, fought by their forebears against cartoonisly evil “Nazis” and “Japs”. Yet how much do we really know about that crucial event and the decades of complex European history preceding it? Why, and for whom, were the twentieth century’s worldwide wars actually waged?
M.S. “Mike” King joins James to discuss his 2015 book The Bad War: The Truth Never Taught About World War 2. Mike is a private investigative journalist, researcher, and political analyst based in the New York City area. A 1987 graduate of Rutgers University, he spent 30 years in marketing and advertising–areas of expertise that have equipped him with a unique perspective when it comes to understanding how “public opinion” on decisive issues and events has been scientifically manufactured for at least a century.

In addition to The Bad War, King is the author of several other richly illustrated and information-packed books challenging the conclusions of establishment historians and linking the historical record to today’s geopolitical phenomena. These titles include Planet Rothschild: The Forbidden History of the New World Order (two vols.), The REAL Roosevelts: What PBS and Ken Burns Didn’t Tell You, and The War Against Putin: What the Government-Media Complex Isn’t Telling You About Russia.
