Belief can be a tricky thing. In 1939, the Polish Army wasn't equipped to invade Grandma's refrigerator.

Once Germany was scared, it was easy to get every German angry! Gary Green reveals not only the means of Hitler's trickery, but the truly scary fact that the very thing can happen again ... and already has. Includes a chapter on how to manage fear and anger, both within ourselves and in our nation.
