Robert K. Sutton & Jonathan M. Katz: A Conversation
Sunday, November 20 @ 12:00 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
Robert K. Sutton‘s Nazis on the Potomac: The Top-Secret Intelligence Operation that Helped Win World War II chronicles the work executed during World War II at Fort Hunt, Virginia, in a secret facility about 15 miles south of Washington, D.C. Known by its code name, P.O. Box 1142, the operation interrogated and eavesdropped on the highest-level Nazi prisoners and translated and analyzed captured German war documents. Smedley Butler went wherever the flag went. He helped annex the Philippines, seize the land for the Panama Canal, and invade and occupy Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, and Haiti. As his story unfolds in Gangsters of Capitalism: Smedley Butler, the Marines, and the Making and Breaking of America’s Empire, Jonathan M. Katz traces the rise of the U.S. global empire in the early 20th century and its legacies today.
