    You thought politics today was divisive and bad? This book takes us back to pre-WW2. Most people who know about the war know there was division in the country prior to Pearl Harbor but most don't realize just how much and how intense it really was. This book does an excellent job providing a look into those days. I highly recommend it to any student of WW2 as it gives a very different perspective on Roosevelts leadership (or sometimes lack thereof) which has been all but forgotten in favor of his post Pearl Harbor leadership. The enigma of Charles Lindbergh is also explored in detail. Was he an anti-semite and pro-nazi. You will need to read the book to find out. I am stingy on my stars so a 4 star from me means exactly what it says..."very good".

    Powerful words from pre-WWII days

    I enjoyed the history of both sides of this issue. It is hard to imagine how these views were formed, but it was a different time. War is never good, but the Nazi threat to mankind was almost self evident. This was a different Roosevelt and Lindbergh than what we were taught in school after the war.

    Fascinating, Much greater depth to little-known pre-WWII history.

    Few people have ever really been aware of the extent of the deep divide in our country just prior to our engagement in WWII. This book wonderfully reveals many fascinating characters and stories in telling the tale of our long tortured debate and final acquiescence to the necessity of going to war. Although I was in my teens in 1940 I've just become aware of the people that were adamantly opposed to supporting Britain in it's struggle for survival against Hitler for fear of being sucked into war again after our sacrifices in Europe's WWI in 1917. My first knowledge in some depth of this faction came from recently finishing the life of Joseph Kennedy. It was surprising to me the vehemence of his and other's objections to any act that might violate our US neutrality. This book "Angry Days" thoroughly rounds out the whole story of the deeply entrenched US national isolationist mind-set and Roosevelt's timidity in fighting it after losing his political "capital" following his Supreme Court "packing" attempt. I highly recommend this well-written book on a little-known and little-understood but critical period in American history.

    This was sent as a gift to my brother who left today for the Normandy Tour! He loves reading about WWII and was excited to find two WWII veterans on the tour as well!

    So far, it's not what I expected

    About 190 pages in, not as much Lindbergh as I thought there would be. Unless he figures in more as the book goes on, putting his name in the title is misleading.
