Что такое Секретная Книга Тайн американских президентов почти никто не знает. Но она действительно существует Она передается от президента к президенту, от Вашингтона до Обамы и Трампа и содержит в себе факты о историях из ряда вон выходящих по своему масштабу и последствиям.

The Forsaken were the US emigrants abandoned by successive governments to the systematic repression of the Stalinist USSR. Vivid first hand accounts of the few survivors are woven together with subsequent research which has begun to establish the full horror of the gulag prison camp system.

As one who spent over 40 years studying and using the Russian language in military and defense areas, I really appreciate this book. My old Russian teachers who taught me the language over 50 years ago told me all about the Soviet Union whence their parents had escaped. After military service and then acquiring my undergraduate degree in Russian, I spent 6 months on a USIA (the old United States Information Agency) cultural exchange exhibit traveling around the USSR, after which I returned to the military institute where I had originally studied Russian and spent 30 years teaching the language to our military intelligence personnel. This book reveals the tragedy of the generation who, out of desperation during the Great Depression, grabbed what they thought was a safety line and traveled to what was being promoted as a "workers' paradise" in the 1930s, only to be swept up in the Great Purge and the Stalin Terror and be worked to death in the Soviet GULAG. It holds a valuable lesson for today's youth, many of whom are anxious to believe the siren song of socialism and accept it as the solution to all of society's problems. As the Russians say, "measure the cloth nine times before making the first cut." I only hope that young people can be encouraged to read this book and learn from history before they, too, might be caught up in the net and perish as did the generation described in the book.

Well written, well researched. Any author who shows up with forty pages of footnotes should be taken seriously. A topic that seems both relevant and troubling in an age where Americans appear hell bent on chucking aside over 225 years of constitutional protections. Imagine what Stalin could have done with the surveillance state and somnolent citizenry extant in the U.S. today. This is a tragic period that is virtually ignored by the American educational establishment, from secondary schools thru post graduate studies. Odd don't you think?

Contrary to the single 1-star review, this is not some anti-communist dialectic, it is subtitled "An American Tragedy in Stalin's Russia." The reader's opinion of the FDR administration should be significantly diminished in reading about his ambassador to Moscow, Joseph Davies, who spent much of his time out side of Russia, or when there, personally lowered the value of the black-market dollar exchange rate by endless shopping excursions scooping up Russian art. Davies went on to become a major adviser of FDR for Russian relations during the war and at Postdam. My only complaint is the author describes Davies as a "liberal lawyer" when he was anything but liberal. He was a corporate lawyer interested in money and deals, with no concern whatever for human rights or the gross abuses of Stalin.

The book criticizes the actions or inaction of many American individuals: Americans naive enough to risk their futures and lives in the Soviet Union in the Great Depression era, Henry Ford whose book "My Life and Work" was a bestseller in Russia and whose factory ethic was admired by Stalin and who also made millions selling automobiles and factories to Stalin (the UAW's Walter Reuther worked for a time in the Gorky Ford plant), capitalists who encouraged Franklin Roosevelt to recognize the new Soviet Union as it would be good for business, President Franklin Roosevelt ambassador to the Soviet Union, Joseph Davies, an incompetent political appointee who was rich, acquisitive of Russian art, naive of what was going on in Russia to the point where his behavior reminds one of the Queen's Court in Alice in Wonderland. Davies written reports from the National Archives referenced in the book include accounts of Davies attendance at Russian show trials and his belief in the guilt of all those quickly convicted and executed. The book also parcels out rebuke for FDR Vice-President Henry Wallace who was easily and completely duped by the Russian NKVD in admiring the Kolyma slave camps in a visit there in 1944, US Embassy employees and State Department officers who knew Americans in Russia were being arrested and eliminated as they stepped out of the embassy onto the streets but did nothing as it would not benefit their careers, US newsmen in Russia who were wined, dined, entertained (and censored) who failed to investigate or believe in the fatality rates of the Ukrainian famine of the early 30's, and famous Americans like Paul Robeson, who was confronted by his own son for not speaking out on the execution of people they had both known in Russia. Additionally, American mining experts helped open up the rich goldfields of the arctic Kolyma, while the FDR administration, aware that the Soviet gold was mined by virtual slaves, arranged to buy the Soviet gold on NYC markets and have it shipped to the US to the extent of tens of millions a month in order to control the price and supply of gold. US Lend-Lease shipments also fed the NKVD guards in Magadan while also supplying slave ships to send them north to the Kolyma. The incompetence, greed, negligence to know, care or seek to alleviate the atrocities being committed under Stalin, by parties almost too numerous to list in US industry, government and media are as shocking as the heinous Soviet state repression itself. Harry Truman, senator at the time, is one of the few who seemed to understand the folly of saving Stalin, when he spoke against Lend-Lease and said we should help the Germans if Russia was winning, or if the Germans were winning help the Russians, in order to let the two regimes destroy each other.

On reflection, it is frankly no surprise that with a pro-Soviet ideology and advisers who were blinded to the realities of Stalinism, people like like Davies, and VP like Wallace, FDR handed over Eastern Europe to Stalin after the war. Men who cared little about reports of the crimes of Stalin, or for the lives of Americans trying to flee Stalin, would hardly flinch at putting millions of others behind his Iron Curtain.
