Description - Friendly Fire by Clive Prince

Friendly Fire explores the intrigue and treachery between - and within - the nations that were ostensibly allies during the Second World War. It demonstrates the extent to which the Allied war effort was driven by vested interests, primarily concerned with the balance of power in the post-war world rather than the defeat of Germany and Japan. These machinations prolonged the duration of the war by as much as two years and the end results were a Europe divided between East and West, and the onset of the Cold War.The theme of 'friendly fire' - casualties inflicted on one's own side - connects the various aspects of this book. The Allied leaders deliberately misled their own citizens about the real reasons they were fighting, resorting to dirty tricks and even assassination to protect their true agendas. As Friendly Fire reveals, every one of the wartime governments had its own guilty secret. Among the many revelations, we learn how, for its own economic ends, the Roosevelt administration actively encouraged the war between Britain and Germany, and how Anglo-American relations during the Second World War were characterised by suspicion, mistrust and a struggle for future supremacy.
