US Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler collected an award cabinet full of medals for his battlefield bravery. But perhaps his bravest act of all was to declare, after his retirement in the early 1930s, who was really winning (and losing) during the bloody clashes. It was business interests, he revealed, who commercially benefited from warfare. War Is a Racket is the title of the influential speech Butler delivered on a tour across the United States, as well the expanded version of the talk that was later published in 1935—and is now reprinted here. This seminal piece of writing rings as true today as it did during Butler’s lifetime. In his introduction, Jesse Ventura reviews Butler’s original writings and relates them to our current political climate—explaining how right he was, and how wrong our current system is. With an insightful new foreword by Salon.com founder David Talbot, this portable reference will appeal to anyone interested in the state of our country and the entire world. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in history--books about World War II, the Third Reich, Hitler and his henchmen, the JFK assassination, conspiracies, the American Civil War, the American Revolution, gladiators, Vikings, ancient Rome, medieval times, the old West, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Это русскоязычное издание книги "Война - Это Рэкет", написанной генерал-майором морской пехоты США Смедли Батлером. За 34 года службы в морской пехоте США генерал Батлер участвовал во многих военных операциях по всему миру. Когда он вышел в отставку, то был самым орденоносным морским пехотинцем в истории США. Генерал Батлер понял, что десятилетия его службы в морской пехоте не были направлены на защиту США от иностранных захватчиков. Он лишь увеличивал богатства компаний и людей, которые наживались на войнах в разных странах или полагались на военных для защиты своих деловых интересов за рубежом. Генерал Батлер писал и читал лекции о финансовой коррупции и аморальности, лежащих в основе системы получения военной прибыли в Соединенных Штатах. Он описал эту систему как "рэкет". Этот "рэкет" теперь известен как Военно-промышленный комплекс США. Она расширилась и теперь тратит больше триллиона долларов ежегодно, располагая почти 800 военными базами в больше чем 80 странах мира. Включает комментарий российского писателя-публициста Александра Русина "Да, генерал Батлер! Вы правы, сэр!" Введением Ханс Шеррер, издателя этого русского издания.

War Is a Racket is written by the most decorated American soldier in US history, Major General Smedley D. Butler. Butler frankly discusses from his experience as a career military officer how business interests commercially start and benefit from warfare. After his retirement from the Marine Corps, Gen. Butler made a nationwide tour giving his speech "War is a Racket." The speech was so well-received that he wrote a longer version as this book with the same title which helped popularize his message. Lowell Thomas praised Butler's "moral as well as physical courage" in telling the truth about war profiteering. This message has never been more relevant, as we see the war racket in full swing in recent history like never before in endless perpetual wars, i.e. Iraq and Afghanistan, and elsewhere.
