Lou Briganti, a husband, father, history buff and author, has completed his newest book, “The Winnowing Fan” a gripping and potent work that takes an entirely unauthorized peek under the “cover” of 20th Century American History.
America’s story during and after World War II is one of great courage, leadership and heroism. Those virtues describe Secretary George C. Marshall, whose service after the war is easily as important as his military leadership during it. Little known, however, was a crucial mistake made by the young Harvard MBAs he sent to Europe in 1948 to implement the Marshall Plan. That mistake was kept secret for decades. Only much later did its unintended results come to life: a group of extremely wealthy and powerful men working to take control of governments on both sides of the Atlantic – to restore their pre-war regime as capitalists who ruled like emperors through the sheer power of their wealth.
This small group called together by Marshall’s Harvard grads were supposed to come out of hiding, then fade back into the woodwork by1951. Instead, they stayed together, quietly adding new members, including a single American who quickly took the Chairman’s seat. Unhappy with the post-war floundering of European economies, they were intent on gaining control by whatever means necessary. Against them are no Presidents, no Prime Ministers, no armies -- only a single man who leaves his career as a columnist for the Washington Post to research and document the lives of the great pre-war industrialists – not recognizing at first that they are the very men who are secretly working to retake their seats of power. With no weapons beyond his own professional skills, he finds himself literally at war, and very much alone after losing his young wife and daughter in a random car-jacking and murder. The Winnowing Fan is the story of that war, and of the sacrifices Craig Hadden must make to prevent the destruction of his nation and perhaps a dozen others.
Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “The Winnowing Fan” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes & Noble.
