One thought on “Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt: The Rivalry That Divided America

  1. Glenn Walborn

    The book Lindbergh vs. Roosevelt by James P. Duffy is a very mind changing read. The book starts with Lindbergh and Roosevelt’s first quirl with how the airmail would be shipped and delivered. The Roosevelt administration wanted the airmail to be shipped by the Army Air Corps, and to have it happen he had false accusations made about private air carriers’ corruption. Lindbergh was working for one of those companies and decided to stand up against Roosevelt, arguing that even if the accusati [...]

  2. Steven Harbin

    I tried, but I literally couldn't get past the author's bias and agenda. Perhaps later on I'll be able to attempt it again and ignore those things, but I'm sure I won't be paying any money for it.

  3. Relstuart

    Charles Lindbergh won fame at home and abroad by being the first person to fly across the Atlantic ocean. Not only was he a pilot but he was an aviation pioneer that helped develop the aviation industry and became an enemy of FDR during the air mail crisis of 1934. FDR had the last laugh succeeding in labeling Lindbergh a Nazi sympathizer since Lindbergh was for the United States staying out of WWII until after Pearl Harbor. Black listed and unable to join the military effort Lindbergh lent his [...]

  4. David R.

    Let's start by accepting Duffy's basic premise: that Col. Lindbergh was no Nazi sympathizer and was badly used by President Roosevelt. There's sufficient documentation elsewhere to accomplish that objective. But Duffy strains credibility with a text that portrays FDR in the absolute worst possible light, the politically naive Lindbergh in the very best light, and that makes troubling assertions about the United Kingdom. I wonder if Duffy's real agenda is to smear Winston Churchill and the entire [...]

  5. Maurice A. Rhodes

    I approached this book with some interest but was disappointed - because, in my opinion the author deals with black and white. Black: Roosevelt and his close advisors were unscrupulous politicos whose nasty aim was do get America into the war "and send our boys" to their deaths. In addition, the New Deal was a near Socialist plot to destroy American self sufficiency;Whit: Lindbergh was a blonde Nordic hero who had flown the Atlantic alone in a single engine plane (even though it had been flown e [...]

  6. Ann McReynolds

    In this astounding record, my views of both Charles Lindbergh, the magnificent and courageous hero of the first solo flight over the Atlantic, and Franklin Roosevelt, the President who brought the nation through the Great Depression and steered us through World War II, were forever altered. Aviation history recorded the wave of adulation that followed Lindbergh from his landing in Paris through his return to the U.S and then on to his visit to Germany, in which he assessed that country's progres [...]

  7. Stefanie

    It was clear from the beginning that the author leans to the right, at least politically. As a conservative myself, it made me "want" to read this book even more, although I still found myself questioning the bias the author might have had. I thought the primary sources that Duffy employed were solid, although it's possible that some statements were taken out of context; it's impossible to know with any certainty unless you study each source. I came to the realization when I was a teenager (and [...]

    "Charles Lindbergh could have used a much better P.R. guy!" That is what my Dad said when he and I were discussing this subject. I couldn't agree more.Lindbergh was largely portrayed as a Nazi supporter and an Anti-Semite prior to America's entry into WWII. The Franklin White House and the mainstream media presented this image of Lindbergh and the American public seems to have largely "bought" the story. It appears that this really wasn't the case though First: the media reviled him for acceptin [...]

    By chance, I saw this book on the shelf of a bookstore while waiting for my wife to find a book she wanted to red. I had heard that Lindbergh had been accused of being a Nazi sympathizer but had never looked into what was behind the accusations. Because of the book's smaller size, I thought it might be an easy read during the spare moments of an upcoming trip. The author made a mistake very early on when he intimated in his preface that he was an admirer of Rush Limbaugh. From that point on I wa [...]

  10. John Bowen

    I found this book a little hard to read due to the writing style and got through it in short bursts. As an aviation enthusiast for as long as I can remember Lindbergh was someone whose aeronautical achievements I was well aware of and from what I had previously read of him the charges of being an anti-semite and a Nazi seemed patently unjust.This book helped me to understand a little of the background and, cross referenced with other material that I have read, makes me feel that it presents a va [...]

  11. Brian F

    There was a good book to be written on this topic but Duffy was clearly not the man to pull it off. I was expecting a serious academic-ish book but it was more a polemic with occasional facts thrown in there. Duffy was clearly more interested in smearing FDR and liberalism in general than anything else. There's nothing wrong with reporting on the machinations of a politician. But ultimately, it was just overkill, beating a dead horse long after the point was made. Even in his intro, he wanted ab [...]

  12. Thomas Kidd

    This is a good book. It depends heavily, but not solely on Berg's biography of Lindbergh. Hopefully, it will help rehabilitate an American icon, who was a simple son of the Midwest, one who loved America and did not want America's boys to do the work that the sons of Britain and France should have done. The organization of the book could have been better, as from time to time, the author seemed to be repeating narrative that he had already addressed earlier. The book is at its best comparing the [...]

  13. Abby

    This book was extremely well-written and well-researched. The author begins by explaining why he chose to write the book and what his political stance is, but does not let that echo throughout the book. His bias is made known at the beginning which makes the book better because there is not a hidden agenda. The book is a great telling of a part of American history that is often overlooked. The ideals of Lindbergh reflect the hypocrisy of most of the criticisms I have read about this book. People [...]

  14. Jfarley

    Lindbergh ends up being a bit player in the author's diatribe against FDR. Admittedly, there is plenty of ammo against FDR, but I'd only point out that, as the story unfolds we are told about the USS Niblack and the USS Greer, both American destroyers that were admittedly testing the limits of neutrality prior to our entry in the war but stayed within the author's story of how Hitler continued to "turn the other cheek." Not mentioned was the USS Reuben James, which had it's bow blown off by a Na [...]

  15. Gary

    Interesting story about how Lindbergh and FDR ended up on the opposite side of a political struggle. I have read a couple books about FDR (seems like there are a wide range of views about how effective he was as a president), but I knew little about Lindbergh. Duffy tells a story of how Lindbergh was misunderstood and has his character diminished by FDR political machine. At the same time I was sympathetic to FDR plight since he was trying to determine how to beat Hitler and Lindbergh was arguin [...]

  16. Steven Womack

    One of the most interesting things about this book to me was Duffy's take on FDR. While some historians and many right-wing critics have been hard on Roosevelt over the years, this is the first mainstream, centrist book that really highlighted an aspect of FDR's personality that I wasn't aware of. He really was controlling and often vindictive and mean-spirited.I guess you don't win four presidential elections without at least being a part-time SOB.

  17. Glenna Brown

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author's obvious and sometimes malicious bias is hard to take, but it just wants to make me read more to get a second opinion. As far as learning a good bit about the postal service beginnings with air flight and about CL, it was a great start. I just finished Killing Patton, and a lot of the names, places, and events overlapped. I found that to be further enjoy my read.

  18. Stacy

    There's really not much to be said about this book besides it was extremely biased. James Duffy clearly has a love for Charles Lindbergh and despises FDR. Besides that it was an interesting read someone's opinion on the events that took place. A fairly easy read. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who is looking for facts.

  19. Jim Serger

    True to the on going situation today in the world--this book lays out a rivalry that is so fierce; today one is tarnished by what transpired during war times. Very informative book on right vs my opinion--there was no wrong. Author brought to the forefront the message of being a leader, standing for ones principles over public opinions.

  20. Keith

    I have read many times that Lindbergh was a supporter of the Nazi's, but this book presents a very compelling case against that. It also paints FDR in a very negative light. FDR's actions as described by the author sound a lot like the politicians of today. Once I got going on this book I couldn't put it down.

  21. Diane

    In a world that lionizes FDR, I found this take on him as a political beast refreshing. This won't be the only book I'll read on Lindbergh's legacy, but it's clear that Lucky Lindy was the victim of the worst kind of yellow journalism & political backstabbing. The author, James Duffy, is sympathetic to Lindbergh, but his research appears sound. And isn't it about time someone is?

  22. Kevin Keating

    Great book! I'd always read and heard the slight that Lindbergh was a Nazi or anti-Semite. This book uses lots of citations to make the case that he was simply the victim of a vindictive Roosevelt and his machine. Bummer. Anyway, it was enlightening.

  23. Mal Clough

    gave a different perspective on lindbergh that i had not known as his career interacted with fdr. author is very critical of fdr as he reacted to lindbergh's non-interventionist position on america entering the war

  24. Thomas

    There is way to much of a political agenda forced on the reader by the author. The author should have just stuck to the facts of the time and let you draw you own parallels and conclusions. Two stars only.

  25. Walt

    Excellent, clearly written history of the feud between Lindbergh and Roosevelt. Reveals that Lindbergh was not the pro-Nazi, anti-Semite personna that the pro-Roosevelt media have labelled him.
