Demonstrating how history repeats itself, Pierce O’Donnell details how President Bush’s policy of detaining “enemy combatants” without charge is based on President Roosevelt’s detention of eight German terrorists who came ashore in 1942 with plans to blow up major buildings and rail hubs. What emerges is a passionate defense of the Bill of Rights mixed with a story as entertaining as a political thriller. Raymond Todd’s narration is an excellent complement to the material. Because the book is both historical and political, Todd must vary his delivery as he moves from the narration of facts to a defense of civil liberties. Regardless of the mode in which he reads, this production offers insight into a story few people have heard.
