Helen Gahagan Douglas in The Man With the Iron HeartEdit
In 1947, just after the death of German Freedom Front leader Reinhard Heydrich, Helen Gahagan Douglas stood on the House floor, and pointed out that if opponents of the Truman Administration had had their way, the United States Army would have already been out of Germany, and Heydrich would still have been alive.
She then shared a verbal sparing match with Jerry Duncan (R-Indiana), who reminded Douglas of the substantial loss of American life the GFF had inflicted. Douglas retorted that Duncan and the Republicans had been responsible for hamstringing the Administration and the Army.
