    Difficult to read

    The topic is interesting but I strongly recommend reading it at the cafe at B&N all at one go. Its difficult to set down and resume because it all seems the same. Of course, having read the New Dealers War right before this one made The Conquerors seem like a companion volume that one can skip. Another 1/4 read book on my shelves.

    The Conquerors: Review

    This book is very readable and the author has definitely done his homework. The very difficult dilemma of what to do with the defeated Nazi Germany was discussed from the view of the decision makers. The book does a good job of briging out the many factors that went into policy after the war including the all important goal of making it impossible for another similar war to occur and elimination of Nazi ideology. This was not just a simple account of the presidents actions as are so many other books -it included the policy makers that worked for the presidents. I was surprised at the amount of information included on Henry Morgenthau (who was in some ways, a 1940s version of Henry Kissinger). It was frightening how the cabinet members would fight and manuver and have such major differences over policy and the basic values of right and wrong and justice. I do feel that the authors opinions are also included and I also feel that the actions taken and policies are judged in the book by to our Nation's present 2002 values. This will encourage some readers but perhaps not others.
