History Intrigue for February
By Rick Morris
Welcome to our sixth version of this 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, studying a hugely consequential president who came into office exactly 100 years ago, Woodrow Wilson.
^ From Smithsonian Magazine, the truth behind the Zimmermann Telegram that helped catapult the US into World War I.
^ From the Washington Times, reviewing a book that chronicles the six-month period in 1945 that bridged World War II and the Cold War.
^ From the Los Angeles Times, the little-known account of the time during World War II that Japan shelled California.
