This book looks at the manipulation of the mass communication industries by the British and American intelligence agencies during World War II. It is claimed that deliberate distortions of reality underpinned two major aspects of the "war effort": the strategic bombing of German cities and the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In both cases the hidden strategy was to flex military muscle at Stalin, according to the author, while official propaganda and historical records have claimed that this mass destruction was vital for Allied victory. This book aims to explode this myth and, through its analysis of media manipulation and compliance, explain how public legitimacy was achieved for this senseless destruction. Other military operations, from the Korean war to the American bombing of Libya, are also explored and analyzed in this context.
