Before the Internet, there was Alan Cranston.In 1939, a 24-year old American journalist, recently returned to New York City from Europe, discovers that Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf-as published in the United States-is sanitized. Using Hitler's own words from the original Nazi manifesto, he translates and writes an annotated condensed edition to expose the full measure of Hitler's evil ideology, chilling anti-Semitism, and plans for world domination. The American publisher of Mein Kampf sues for copyright infringement.This short historical non-fiction book is about the people and events that shaped the young journalist's life. It recounts his determined pursuit of the truth to alert Americans and the world to the danger six months before Hitler's war machine invades Poland and begins the march toward WWII. The journalist was Alan Cranston, future Senator from California, a leader in the U.S. Senate, and candidate for president. Cranston dedicated his life to public service, nuclear arms reduction, and world peace.
