1. Why do you think the writers of the Constitution made it so that Congress has to be the branch of government to declare war?

2. What do you think are a few justifiable reasons to declare war on another country? Do you think the United States was justified in declaring war on Germany? Why or why not.

3. Describe how, according to the book A Man Called Intrepid: The Secret War, Roosevelt helps England as much as possible until the American people and Congress decide to enter the war on the side of the Allies.

Essay Topic 3

The book is concerned with the beginnings of modern-day intelligence gathering services. There have always been spies between enemies--but Stevenson's work takes the gathering of information to a much higher level of sophistication.

Discuss one of the following:

1. Trace and analyze the theme of spying throughout the book. Why do countries spy on each other? Is it an honorable occupation? Legal? Necessary? Give examples of how spying created advantages for the Allies. For the Axis.

2. Trace and analyze the creation and continued perfecting of technology used to enhance the gathering of intelligence. Did either the Allies or Axis have superior technology? What is the technology? Why does one side (if so) have more sophisticated technology over the other?

3. In many countries, spying, though considered necessary, is also looked at with a certain degree of distaste. Trace and analyze the attitude toward spies and spying in the book. Are spies considered honorable? What happens to spies caught behind enemy lines? Is spying moral?
