About Prequel: An American Fight Against Fascism

Prequel traces the fight to preserve American democracy back to the 1930s, when a handful of committed public servants and brave private citizens thwarted far-right plotters trying to steer our nation toward an alliance with the Nazis. Before and even after our troops had begun fighting abroad in World War II, a clandestine network flooded the country with disinformation aimed at sapping the strength of the US war effort and persuading Americans that our natural alliance was with the Axis, not against it. It was a sophisticated and shockingly well-funded campaign, including elected officials, to undermine democratic institutions, promote anti-semitism, and destroy citizen confidence in our elected leaders, with the ultimate goal of overthrowing the US government and installing authoritarian rule. The heroic efforts of journalists, prosecutors, and regular citizens exposing the insurrectionists makes for a relevant tale for our disquieting times.
