Harry Elmer Barnes was an intellect of the first rank and he was a prolific author with publications in the areas of sociology and the history of medieval and modern Europe and with an emphasis on the revision of the stories of both World War I and World War II, to which he turned a very critical perception. Mr. Barnes is a forgotten man largely ignored by the forces which control American institutions of higher learning. As a writer he should be grouped with people like Willis A. Carto and Revilo P. Oliver, both of whom are also ignored by those who direct the flow of information into and out of American universities. Men whose research and investigation revealed facts and circumstances concerning, among other things, the two World Wars which contradicted the unending flow of propaganda from our schools, newspapers, movies and media generally. These men and others are pejoratively referred to a revisionists historians.

That word - "revisionist" - has taken on an especially negative connotation because it is often used to criticize post-1945 writers who have the gall to question that holy-of-holies - the so-called Holocaust - which is the unassailable basis for post-WW2 American/European civilizations. Many people currently languish in European prisons for questioning anything about the treatment of Jews by the SS and others.

The "Barnes Trilogy" consists of three essays none of which have anything to do with Holocaustianity, but, which do seriously question the stories of the two world war conflagrations which killed millions of people and which, as we are currently realizing, destroyed European civilization by weakening it to such an extent that it is, with the assistance of certain traitorous European leaders, dying.

Essay # 1 - "The Court Historians Versus Revisionism". Mr. Barnes reviews an article by William Langer ("The World Crisis and American Foreign Policy") and by S. Everett Gleason, and in another article from Professor Herbert Feis, in which he initially chastises Mr. Langer for his apparent willingness to contradict himself and to whitewash history in return for the privilege of being accepted and rewarded by the powers that be in American publishing. Mr. Barnes' primary point being that we have all been swept intellectually away by the "hysterical propaganda against Hitler". He specifically ridicules the notion that President Roosevelt was a pacifist, which was the polar opposite of reality as he, with his pal Churchill, schemed and plotted the USA into both theaters of WW2. Mr. Barnes emphasizes that Hitler was an Anglomaniac who, above all else, did not want a war with England as witnessed when he allowed their army to escape from Normandy. Most disturbingly, Mr. Barnes contends that Mr. Roosevelt knew about the Pearl Harbor attack days in advance, but failed to warn his commanders whose careers were ruined on the altars of expediency and deceit. He concludes saying that Professor Feis has substituted dignity and loftiness of tone for honesty and integrity of purpose. All three authors are criticized for their rash enthusiasm for the official mythology about World War 2. ( )
