History Intrigue for June
By Rick Morris
We are introducing a new feature in The FDH Lounge, entitled History Intrigue. We’re going to be flagging interesting-looking tidbits of a historical level. While part of this is just going to come from general web surfing, many links each time are courtesy of Real Clear History, who does a great job aggregating for this topic just like all the others in the Real Clear brand.
We always work to be class acts in our own aggregation, so we’ll always give a mention of the site involved in the link.
^ From The American Conservative, how Teddy Roosevelt unilaterally yanked this country off of its original orientation towards the pursuit of overseas empire.
^ From Der Spiegel, how the initial postwar West German government was infiltrated at all levels by ex-Nazis.
