A JUXTAPOSITION OF OPPOSITE ENDS OF THE SPECTRUM

If you have not done so already (and I suspect you may have read the former, by Patrick J. Buchanan, but not the latter, by Victor Davis Hanson), I encourage you to read these two columns for dramatically differing perspectives on World War II: here and here. It would appear that Buchanan's effort at revisionism is a good example of what compels Professor Hanson to set the record straight and to assure that students of history remember to understand the crucible in which decisions were made by world leaders of that era.

HAT TIP: I became aware of the Hanson column in this post at "What Attitude Problem?".
