Fascism can tolerate full employment because of the repression of labor (not to mention racial and sexual minorities, etc.). You can't just look at the full employment policies in isolation, as Lynn did, and I assume the author of the book did. And you sure concede some credibility to the Hayekian critique of Keynesianism by ignoring this little fact.
