Charles François Gounod (1818)

I am an author living in New Milford, Ct. and I have written a book that I believe would be of interest to many readers. It is not only the true story of a daring sea rescue, but also gives insight into the world between the wars; the rise of communism, fascism, the true story of the Spanish Civil War as well as the fantastic little known story of how a Marine general saved America from a coup that would have made the United States a fascist nation. It tells of how the pseudoscience of Eugenics led to the Holocaust and the Climate Change movement for those who can take the truth. I welcome all research into the facts that I have presented as it would give the reader much more information on what I have barely touched. Thank you in advance for your time.
