To my parents, Helen E. and John P. O'Neill, who held our share of the home front; to the war generation as a whole; and especially the gallant fighting men to whom so much is owed.
First words
This is a history of the people's war, not as the phrase was used then to describe a liberal-left agenda, the actual war that Americans fought to preserve their way of life.
In promoting appeasement and military unpreparedness Lindbergh damaged his country to a greater degree than any other private citizen in modern times. That he meant well makes no difference, nor does the fact that numerous Americans agreed with him. Many young isolationists would serve in the military and atone with their lives for previous error. Lindbergh, who had learned nothing from this experience, would suffer only loss of popularity and temporary difficulties in finding suitable employment.
