Interview 1411 – Gerry Docherty on Herbert Hoover and World War One

by | Jan 15, 2019 | Interviews | 7 comments

Today we are joined once again by Gerry Docherty, co-author with Jim MacGregor of Hidden History: The Secret Origins of the First World War and Prolonging the Agony: How the Anglo-American Establishment Deliberately Extended WWI. In this conversation we cover the remarkable suppressed history of Herbert Hoover’s role in prolonging the agony of World War One, including his stewardship of the American relief of Belgium in the early part of the war and overseeing the removal of valuable historical documents from Europe after the war.

Interview 1405 – Gerry Docherty on the Hidden History of WWI


  1. This guy must inspire George Soros in all the callus disregard of human beings welfare for personal profit.

    Docherty and Macgregor’s book is entertaining as informitive read.

  2. Great interview and eye opening stuff.

    For people wanting to dig into the earlier career of Hoover, the following documentary detailing his time in the Australian Gold Fields and the havoc he created there is recommended

    BTW James, a word to encourage you to continue reposting and repromoting some of your past work – I have been a regular visitor since 2012 and somehow had missed the David Kelly documentary. Newbies to the site may be overwhelmed at trawling through your now vast archive, so a curated set of periodic repeats is very worthwhile IMHO.

    sadly human culture is passed on from parent to child and it takes only a tiny interruption to mess this up and destroy generations of accumulated know how and wisdom. There is no ‘progress’ just cycles of ever increasing violence as the base line of our power to do things grows. On the other hand if we dont try then we wouldnt be human but just a kind of animal

  4. Just ordered a copy of Hidden History. Thanks to all parties involved (with regard to this interview and all the offerings from this URL) for the motivation, inspiration, and azimuths of edification.

  5. Mr. Docherty mentioned the lack of information in the history lessons in Belgium regarding WW1

    I can confirm this applies to German Universities as well.

    A colleague of mine is German and studies history and filosophy at a German university. He has just absorbed WW1.

    From my colleague I learned:

    – Facts surrounding WW1 are difficult to establish, since there are so MANY available sources
    – The US population was not influenced by allied propaganda, since a vast portion were from German descent
    – The roots of WW1 go back to the Austrian Hungarian Serbian situation decades before.
    – German history students have to absorb a lot of information regarding the Austrian Hungarian Serbian situation in the 18 hundreds in advanced studies as the ww1 prelude
    – Carroll Quigley, Smedley D. Butler etc are not part of the German literature list, nor has my colleague ever heard of such authors
    – My colleague mentioned “Sleepwalkers” by Christopher Clark as the best information currently available regarding the origins of WW1

    I find one of the most striking aspects is the determination with which information that does not coincide with the official dogmas are countered by this student. Almost as if it were a belief.

  6. I posted this on QFC too:

    A few weeks ago a friend and I were conversing, and Herbbie Hoover’s name came up, not in relation to anything via this site, but in context of was he responsible for the Depression. I mentioned I didn’t know too much about him so I was going to get a bio and see what I might learn. The library has “Hoover, A life” by Glen Jeansonne. At this point I’ve read about 1/3 of it, then today I listened to James answer the question about sanctions.

    As I scanned the show notes I saw the link to Interview 1411, on Hoover & WWI. Wow, was that a shocker? The bio I’m reading gives a childlike description of Hoover’s life, reminding me of the type of bios I read in elementary school; it gives the air of a little embellishment by the author, but not so much it was nauseating. While I realize it’s written to appeal to a general audience, if what I heard on the 1411 interview is true, I might conclude it was written to assist in covering up the events referenced. Although by now the people involved are long dead.

    There was one part of the interview that left me puzzled. Mr. Docherty, around the 1:01:30 mark, along with James, seem to equate Donald Trump’s behavior to that of Herbert Hoover’s alleged, by Docherty, behavior. If that was the intended message it strikes me as, based on what I think I know, damning to Docherty’s, and to a lesser extent, James’s credibility. Or am I missing something?
