Operation Snow: How a Soviet Mole In FDR's White House Triggered Pearl Harbor

Wes Vernon at the Washington Times offers a good review of John Koster's Operation Snow: How a Soviet Mole in FDR's White House Triggered Pearl Harbor.  

John Koster is not the first author to lay the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor largely at the feet of Soviet agents. He has, however, connected major pieces of that Soviet activity within the United States in significant detail.

Mr. Koster, a serious author of history and U.S. Army veteran, has written a volume shining new light on the Soviet plot — specifically as it involved Harry Dexter White.

In “Operation Snow: How a Soviet Mole in FDR’s White House Triggered Pearl Harbor,” the author follows the twists and turns of White's perfidy as a top official in FDR's Treasury Department. Not the least of the New Dealers who relied heavily on White's judgment was his boss, Secretary Henry Morgenthau, as well as others in President Roosevelt's Cabinet.

Mr. Koster writes that White pulled off “one of the most devastating acts of treason in American history.”
